"always use NPP with" option stopped working..



  • Hi guys,

    I’m unable to associate txt files to always use NPP since the win10 1607 upgrade for some reason… this has never been a problem in the past.

    (right click on the txt file to open with NPP works fine)

    I’ve tried re-installing the latest NPP 7.5.1 both in 64 and 32 bit to no avail.

    any help is appreciated!



  • here is what do,

    1. right click on the txt file
    2. Open with
    3. choose another app (as npp doesn’t appear in the list)
    4. look for another app on this PC
    5. (always use this app) is checked,
    6. browse to NPP folder and open “notepadd++ application” file that starts the application
    7. nothing happens… just comes back to the explorer
