How to create a portable npp?



    1. How do I create a portable version of npp76 or is it already portable?
    2. In portable npp I assume plugin, language and function list files are a part of the portable environment, is that correct?

    Best regards from Lasse

    you can download the official portable version of notepad++ 7.6.2 from here: https://notepad-plus-plus.org/repository/7.x/7.6.2/npp.7.6.2.bin.zip
    extract it to your desktop, usb drive or any place you want (except %ProgramFiles%)
    and run notepad++.exe inside it.

    In portable npp I assume plugin, language and function list files are a part of the portable environment, is that correct?

    yes, it will all be inside this npp.7.6.2.bin folder.

    note: you can rename this folder, and/or have more than one portable copy at the same time, to e.g. use one of it for testing and playing around with any settings, and one to work
