    Three steps per file:

    • Ctrl-A
    • DEL
    • Ctrl-S

    edit: 5 steps if you count opening the file at the start, and closing the file at the end



  • @PeterJones thank you,
    I mean open all files like 10 files in one time, then delete all lines inside each file then save all, exit

    I mean do my procedure 10 times. Or set up a script of some sort to do it for you. (Notepad++ has multiple available scripting plugins which you could learn, including PythonScript, and LuaScript.)

    Honestly, your problem is most easily solved at the command line, not in Notepad++. I could do it in a one-line at the cmd.exe prompt. The following proves it, if you can find the menu in Notepad++ that will decode this base64 text.

    If you want help, it’s best to show effort, and not just demand changes from those of us who are volunteering to help you.

    Heheh…Peter holds people hostage to some decoding effort…hehehe. Wish I’d thought of that technique. It’s got snarky me written all over it. LOL

    In other words, Nice one Peter!
