Open file list *.ext to list files (7.5.4) behavior
I have been using Notepad++ for several years but recently upgraded Notepad++ and noticed when I try to list the files in a directory *.txt, Notepad++ now opens ALL the files instead of listing, is that a feature/bug or some new setting? because in my old version (7.5.5) it never did that. I noticed every new version does this and can’t find anything in the change log or preferences for it, please advise.
welcome to the notepad++ community, @gittyup2018
you can switch to new style file diaologue at the menu:
settings > preferences > default directory,
use new style dialog, as seen at the screenshot below.
open file in old style dialogue:
entering *.txt and pressing enter will open all .txt files at that folder.
open file in new style dialogue:
entering *.txt and pressing enter will filter all .txt files at that folder, without opening them.
Thank you now it works as expected…interesting that the setting is called new behavior when it is actually old behavior, but whatever happy it works, I would have never found that so thanks again!
