How ti see what is starting tag without scrolling

You appear to be missing my point. I will try one more time, but this is the last I’ll say in response to you in this thread. (Really, I wish I were willing to let it go. Hopefully, this one last one.)
No one has asked the developer for the feature, which is why it hasn’t been implemented. You may feel free to submit a request at the link already provided.
You don’t like the workaround; fine. It apparently doesn’t meet some unspecified need that you have. If you had told us why it doesn’t meet your need, instead of fighting us, someone could have provided a different workaround, or an alternative solution, like a PythonScript which would have put the information on the status bar. But instead of that, you fought us, so you’re likely to be left disappointed in your desire to find this matching tag.
NPP is easily as robust as most commerically-available software that I deal with, and more robust than many freeware titles out there. If you don’t like the way it does things, fine. But that doesn’t make it not “robust”. It doesn’t have a feature you want: fine, either ask for the feature where the developer will see the request (ie, the github issues page linked above), or find another piece of software that does what you want out of the box.
I am now going to stop responding to this thread.

I’m thinking you (and maybe all of us) were being “baited” by the OP. I’m still taking this thread as a personal win because I learned something new. I’ve already forgot about the OP. :-)

That sentence is a Shame.
No one - including those using npp more than a decade
Its much easier to scroll, fold, unfold end press keyboard keys…
Something new for me too.

I am only posting again to correct a factual error I made (having surpassed the 3min edit timeout), because I don’t want to be the cause of misinformation in this or any discussion:
Recently, I said
No one has asked the developer for the feature
Earlier, I said
as far as I know, because he’s never been asked to add it
I knew should have stuck with the qualified version that I used at first.
I just searched the issues list, and found issue#302, wherein three years ago, “Noitidart” asked for that feature. “Yaron10” (presumably @Yaron, here) responded that the desired go-to-matching-tag exists in the HTMLTag Plugin – a plugin which was already recommended to (++@cipher-1024) and ridiculed by the OP, but would likely be of use to someone else seeking a solution to a similar problem. Since the developer does not share the OP’s aversion to plugins, the fact that it already existed externally was probably part of the “why” the feature was never implemented natively.
