Run Commands Issue
(Select the Run (menu) and choose “Run…”) Done…
(I specify the program I want to run in “The Program to Run” text/dropdown box) Done…
(I press the Run button to test it and make sure it is working correctly) opens the browser but my .html page wont show.
What are you talking about (the previous text of commands persists) and (along with any arguments to said program)
I want to get what i make in Notepad popup in the browser from the run menu. It’s not doing that and it’s just loading the browser instead of showing the code like: Firefox, Safari and IE does.
I would really like another browser of choice.
Well, the model (in shortcuts.xml) for Chrome is:
so I would suggest something very similar.
In this case,
"$(FULL_CURRENT_PATH)"would be the “arguments to said program”
There is some small amount of additional information on this topic here:
I can’t even do this.
<Command name=“Launch in Google Chrome” Ctrl=“no” Alt=“no” Shift=“no” Key=“0”>"C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe “$(FULL_CURRENT_PATH)”</Command>
<Command name=“Chrome Portable” Ctrl=“yes” Alt=“no” Shift=“yes” Key=“90”>"C:\Users\UserName\Desktop\Others\All Data\GoogleChromePortable\GoogleChromePortable.exe “$(FULL_CURRENT_PATH)”</Command>
I click on run and select one of those two and it does nothing.
If I do this:
<Command name=“Launch in Google Chrome” Ctrl=“no” Alt=“no” Shift=“no” Key=“0”>"C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe "</Command>
<Command name=“Chrome Portable” Ctrl=“yes” Alt=“no” Shift=“yes” Key=“90”>"C:\Users\UserName\Desktop\Others\All Data\GoogleChromePortable\GoogleChromePortable.exe "</Command>
It opens the browsers and wont show the code. What’s the deal with Notepad ++
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe “$(FULL_CURRENT_PATH)”
What’s the deal with Notepad++
No “deal”. Computers are detail-oriented. Your double-quotes are imbalanced on the ones that don’t work.
Still not working. Try for yourself.
Try it yourself.
Well, I did try it, before posting what I posted. With the imbalanced quotes, as you said it does nothing (which is sort of bad…some sort of error message might be better…). Once I balanced the quotes out, running the command opened my current editor file in Chrome. Not clear what is going wrong for you with the information given…

With or without Quotes I get this.
This is getting to be really frustrating to the point I might need to start looking for Alternative editors.
That’s using this line.
<Command name=“Chrome” Ctrl=“no” Alt=“no” Shift=“no” Key=“0”>"C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe “$(FULL_CURRENT_PATH)”</Command>
Ah, okay, I see it now (that .png file makes it really obvious)…your double quote characters are not all the same (see the “a” with the “hat” on it where double quotes should be?). Suggest you make them all like the one before the
C:\Program Files...…use copy and paste on that character…
Still no go. Just copy the hole “Command name” that works for you and i’ll try it. It makes it difficult to guess your steps.
Okay–that’s a reasonable approach at this stage:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe" "$(FULL_CURRENT_PATH)"
Of course I’m not positive what copy and paste of that could do to the double-quotes. :-)
Both Chrome and Chrome Portable now work showing the code.
<Command name=“Chrome” Ctrl=“no” Alt=“no” Shift=“no” Key=“0”>“C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe” “$(FULL_CURRENT_PATH)”</Command>
<Command name=“Chrome Portable” Ctrl=“no” Alt=“no” Shift=“no” Key=“0”>“C:\Users\Pauline\Desktop\Others\All Data\GoogleChromePortable\GoogleChromePortable.exe” “$(FULL_CURRENT_PATH)”</Command>
Thank you for your time. It works great again. Now i can also add Opera to the run. :) Thanks. You made my day!

First: Don’t hijack other threads. It won’t help you get an answer here any faster, and it is considered exceedingly rude (and thus would likely influence many potential responders to not give you an answer).
Second: the contributors to this forum are not paid support, and are in no way obligated to get you your “pizza in 30 minutes or less”. We are fellow users of Notepad++ who volunteer our own time to help other users. It is quite possible for a question to take minutes, hours, or even a day or more to get a response, depending on the topic, how busy people are, how polite you were, etc.
Third: If you’ve “stopped working” as you claim in the hijacked thread, you’ve made a poor choice. If you were editing your source code using plane-jane notepad.exe (or any other text editor without all the awesome features of Notepad++), you wouldn’t have an auto-launch feature. But you’d have this nice
File > Openmenu (or equivalent) from Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer, Edge, or any other browser I’ve ever seen, which would allow you manually open up your local webpage with only a couple more clicks that running it from Notepad++'s
Run > Launch in Chromewould do for you. And then use the browser’s refresh button to reload after you make a change and hit SAVE in Notepad++.
Fourth: this thread already pretty-well describes what you need to do to get it to work in Notepad++. I don’t see how a video would help.
However, in a spirit of education, I will summarize the steps for you:
shortcuts.xml: it will either be in
%AppData%\Notepad++or in your program’s install or portable directory (same folder as
place the lines that DestructiveBurn listed in your
shortcuts.xml, except use ASCII quotes, not unicode smart-quotes.
<Command name="Chrome" Ctrl="no" Alt="no" Shift="no" Key="0">"C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe" "$(FULL_CURRENT_PATH)"</Command> <Command name="Chrome Portable" Ctrl="no" Alt="no" Shift="no" Key="0">"C:\Users\Pauline\Desktop\Others\All Data\GoogleChromePortable\GoogleChromePortable.exe" "$(FULL_CURRENT_PATH)"</Command>
Those rows replace the existing “Launch in Chrome” shortcut
The specific paths given (
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe"or
"C:\Users\Pauline\Desktop\Others\All Data\GoogleChromePortable\GoogleChromePortable.exe") need to be updated to the appropriate path to
chrome.exeon your system.
If you are only using a standard installation of Chrome, not a portable edition, you don’t need the “Chrome Portable” row
- the edited
shortcuts.xmlwill not take effect unless you exit and reload
- the edited
