Notepad++ File Association vs. No Authenication
Randy Reist last edited by
I associate a few file extensions (.TXT included) with Notepad++. When I click on a file that contains one of the associated extensions (like .TXT), the launch of Notepad++ encounters an authentication error. How can this be avoided?

To resolve your issue, please follow these steps :
Step 1:- Open notepad++
Step 2:- Click on Settings menu
Step 3:- Select Preferences
Step 4:- Select File Association
Step 5:- In “Supported extensions”, click "Notepad"
Step 6:- The next panel to the right, you should see the .txt and .log extensions.
Step 7:- Click on .txt extension
Step 8:- Click on “->” (right arrow) to move .txt to "Registered Extensions"
Step 9:- Close the Preferences window
Step 10:- Use File Manager and navigate to a directory with a .txt file in it.
Step 11:- Right-click on .txt file
Step 12:- Select Properties
Step 13:- Open box in “Opens with:”,click the “Change” button and select Notepad++
Step 14:- Click on OK button
Now Notepad++ is default app for .txt files.
I hope above information will be useful for you.

Authentication errors in Notepad++ sound like a proxy issue. See this topic for how to set up Notepad++ to properly see your proxy. Unfortunately, there are some proxy configurations that NPP doesn’t handle. You may have to turn off the auto-updater, and manually install updates and maybe plugins as well.
