No plugin manager



  • Hey everybody,

    My plugin manager was bugged so i completely deleted Notepad++ and reinstalled it. But now there is no plugin manager at all! I’ve seen this on forums before, but than it’s always because people are using the 64-bit version. I’m using the 32-bit version.

    How do I get my plugin manager back?

  • You’re not the first one to notice the Plugin Manager plugin is no longer included.
    Do a search on the forum to find out why.

    hello and welcome to the notepad++ community.

    if you want to add it automatically:
    download and install version 7.3.3:
    https://notepad-plus-plus.org/download/v7.3.3.html
    and then download and upgrade it with the latest version:
    https://notepad-plus-plus.org/download/v7.5.1.html

    if you want to add the plugin manager manually to your fresh 7.5.1 install:
    you can download it here:
    https://github.com/bruderstein/nppPluginManager/releases
    (uni for 32bit and x64 for x64bit installations)
    and copy the extracted files to your notepad++ plugins and updater folder.

    the plugin manager project isn’t automatically included anymore, because many npp users didn’t like the sponsored commercials in the latest versions of plugins manager.

    it is still easy to add it by copying PluginManager.dll into the plugins folder, it remains a downloadable extra option but it isn’t a forced default installation for all notepad++ users anymore.
