Set position where and how NPP opens



  • (1) I cannot find options to change where NPP opens.
    On my 3840* 2160 screen NPP always opens partly off the top right of my screen.
    How do I change the setting to somewhere more sensible?

    (2) Before I close NPP I close all files. Yet on opening it always opens the same file very old file - how do I fix this setting?



  • welcome to the notepad++ community, @Robin-Lamacraft

    did you by any chance install the unofficial 3rd party notepad++ release from the microsoft store ?
    please go to the notepad++ menu ? > debug info... > copy debug info into clipboard and paste it here.

    the unofficial release is known to have bugs, not remembering things like settings, last window position, etc.



  • I was unknowingly using a very out of date 32bit version.
    Problem resolved by downloading and installing
