    where does these screenshots come from? Which program?
    The link, needs to resolve to the program (exe) not to the shell.
    Did you check the registry?
    Was this an update or new installation?
    Did you check/uncheck something during install?
    Which npp version is affected?

    Cheers

    Hi Maison,
    as I don’t have a windows environment currently I only can give you some advise what
    I would do.
    After uninstall, reboot the machine ( I know this is an old MS days joke but just
    to be sure that all files, if locked, get released).
    If logged in again, run regedit and find notepad++.
    The key we are interested in is under HKCR, it is named something like ShellContext or
    ContextShell or so. There you sould see the ANotepad entry which has UUID
    as default value. Copy this value and search for it. You may find a key in HKCR
    with the UUID. The subdirectories are InprocServer and a second one which I can’t remember. The first one is the shell extension entry and its default value points to
    the shell dll. Under the second directory you should see an entry PATH (?),
    which points to your npp installlation directory.

    If you still see this entries after an uninstall then something went wrong during uninstall. DON’T delete it as long as the install directory is the one you want to use.

    Reinstall npp as administrator and double check if the checkbox about shell integration
    is checked.

    Once done, log off and logon again.

    Is the problem still there? Check the registry about these two keys I mentioned before.
    Still there?

    If this doesn’t solve your issue try to manually register it as described here.

    Cheers
    Claudia

    I tried to make the whole process unsuccessful with a previous verse, what I did was two records that resolve the problem, the registry for x84 and x64?

    I had this same problem on a windows server 2008 r2

    x86

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT*\shell\OpenWithNotepad]
    @=“Edit with &Notepad++”
    “icon”=“C:\Program Files (x86)\Notepad++\Notepad++.exe”

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT*\shell\OpenWithNotepad\Command]
    @="“C:\Program Files (x86)\Notepad++\Notepad++.exe” “%1"”

    x64

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT*\shell\OpenWithNotepad]
    @=“Edit with &Notepad++”
    “icon”=“C:\Program Files\Notepad++\Notepad++.exe”

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT*\shell\OpenWithNotepad\Command]
    @="“C:\Program Files\Notepad++\Notepad++.exe” “%1"”

    Thanks

  • @Claudia-Frank

    For the step by step above did not work, register fix problem, believing that Windows 10 has changed something.

    Thanks

  • @Maison-da-Silva

    understood, thx.

    Windows 10 has changed something.

    Most likely, haven’t much time to test win10 as I was already migrating to Linux.

    Cheers
