Hang on MenuIcons + Hide menu bar + Right click

  • Hello folks,

    On Windows 10, enabling MenuIcons 1.2.2 plugin, selecting “Hide menu bar” from Notepad++ preferences and then right clicking anywhere inside any tab, with or without selecting text, will cause Notepad++ to hang for about one minute. It doesn’t crash, just hang and no menu will show up.

    I’ve removed the plugin even because I wasn’t really using it anymore and it’s all good now.

    Is it just me or is it reproducible.


  • this can be fix via another plugin uninstall
