Trying to completely remove notepad++



  • Hello,

    I have odd problems while trying to update notepad++ plugins, so I tried to uninstall and install again Notepad++. It seems Notepad++ did not forget many things such as my current session. I’d like to know which files and registry entries I have to delete after uninstalling Notepad++, so I can try installing again and check if this solved my problem.

    Many thanks to those who will help me.



  • see https://github.com/bruderstein/nppPluginManager/releases and the fixed issue, maybe your issue with plugin manager is fixed already, if it was not just an issue with a specific plugin.

    Under %appdata%\Roaming\Notepad++ is probably some persistent data. This depends on the install mode of N++ (single user or all users) and the windows version. Maybe you could sharesome data N++ version used, Win version, plugins.



  • Sorry, I am watching my topics but I don’t see where I get any notification or mail… Thanks for trying to help me.

    I accidentally tried to update plugins with my non administrator user, and I still have pending actions for plugin manager with this user (but none with the administrator user). Where could I manually remove the flags so I don’t get this dialog box each time I run N++?

    I think I did a all users install, I am using Windows Seven.



  • hi, first of all i had a similar problem and it took a long time to solve the problem. as a result, I solved the problem completely and the steps should be as follows; First, you should uninstall Notepad ++ from the program manager, then open the file manager and select the option to show hidden files, folders and drives again in the window with the options> options> folder. then say okay close the windows. Open this computer window and search by typing Notepad ++ in the search box. after doing all these, run the registry editor searching CTRL + S Regedit, close all open folders, click on the computer and open the search window with the combination of CTRL + F Search the name Notepad ++ and delete the found files. Use the find next option to find and delete all, then restart your computer. Download notepad ++ x86.exe and x64.exe, then install the first x86. disable run when finished setup. then install the x64 version without running anything. When installation is finished run and close notepad ++. then reload the x86 version and all settings will be reset.
