Notepad++ stays running after exit

  • Windows 7 Pro 32-bit

    When I exit Notepadd++, I can still see the program running in Task Manager. Is there anyway to tell Notepad++ to completely shutdown when I exit?


  • welcome to the notepad++ community, @major4579

    notepad++ should not stay as an active process when you exit it, except if a plugin prevents a shutdown.

    can you please run notepad++ with the parameter -noPlugin, e.g. by adding -noPlugin to your notepad++ desktop shortcut, or starting notepad++.exe -noPlugin from cmd ?

    also it would come in handy, if you provide us with your debug information by going to the notepad++ menu ? > debug info... > copy debug info into clipboardand pasting it here.

    many thanks and best regards.
