Saving Settings



  • Is there a way to save all the preferences and settings of the installed version of NP++?

    Registry entry perhaps?

  • Hi Chuck. In a default installation, your settings are in %appdata%\Notepad++. This wiki page has a thorough description of all the files, where they are, and what they do. If you have one of the supported cloud providers, you can save your settings there (see the instructions on the wiki page). I would suggest making a backup of the whole %appdata%\Notepad++ directory before you experiment with that. Somehow I whacked my settings when I was screwing around with the cloud option and I cried and cried.

    Good Luck
