Notepad++ Installation / Admin Rights
UserX1234 last edited by
I am trying to have my new IT department install Notepad++ on my machine. The question that I was asked on my support ticket is as follows:
Is Notepad ++ approved for non-admin use on the environment?
I am not really sure what he is asking. I guess he is asking if NP++ can run without admin rights after it has been installed.
My machine runs Windows 10 Enterprise.

I guess it is. I use it in some machines without Admin rights and it works fine except:
- You can not update it
- You cannot install plugins in the default dir (you can check the option to load plugins from the %appdata% dir while installing if you need them)
- You cannot edit files that require Admin rights (duh!)
Other than that, you can use it just fine.
