text highlighting



  • whenever i use the notepad ++ the text appears in the simple black color instead of a colorful and eye catching manner . can u pls guide me how can i get those eye catching colorful text while writing a source code .



  • NPP determines the language from the file’s extension. If you open a .cpp file, it’s content will be highlighted according to C++ rules.

    If you start a new file, NPP has no means to find out what highlighting rules to apply. In this case you have two options: a) Select your Language from the Menu labeled “Language” or b) save your file with an appropriate extension.
