No response after moving plugin window

  • In this couple days, every time I move/stick plugin window in notepad++ (include original explorer, search result, NppFTP, Compare…etc), my pc will froze for 5 sec…
    I have done full remove and reinstall it ( 7.3.3 and 7.3.2 ) many times, but still not back to normal.

    shot in the dark - stop npp, rename the notepad++ directory under %APPDATA%, restart npp.
    Same behavior?


  • Still have same problem… > " <

    Thank you for reply~

  • Hello @inu20 ,

    I assume you have tried restarting the computer, have you?
    Try removing the N++ plugins one by one and test to see if anything changes.


  • Hello @pnedev ,

    Yes, I did remove Notepad++ and restart my computer at that time, and it still froze without any plugins.

    It not froze every time now… I might used to it. > " <

    Thank you for your reply.

  • Hello @inu20 ,

    I have no idea what might be wrong then, sorry. From what you describe it looks like a system issue though.


  • Ever tried the minimalist package from:

    -> no plugins and no installation. This should give you a hint if one of the plugins is a problem or somewhere in your local config there is an issue.
