Automatically create folders when opening a new file

  • When I try to create a new file in a folder that doesn’t exist, Notepad++ gives up with an error message. Is there a way to have Notepad++ create this folder (or multiple folders recursively if needed), or at least ask me if I want to create these folders?

  • welcome to the notepad++ community, @raisen

    please go to settings > preferences > default directory and activate use new style dialog as seen at the screenshot below:


    after that, if you save a new file, or if you choose save as, you will have a new folder button, to create a new folder, if it does not exist, as seen at the next screenshot:


    best regards.
