Bring window to front on opening file

There isn’t a option to bring NotePad++ to the front window if it’s already open and I open another file, so I end up hunting for what happened every time. This should be a option! :-) Please. Awesume. Love Notepad++

sorry, not a native English speaker - what do try to achieve??
Do you mean you have multiple applications running and you want to switch
from another application to npp? If so -> ALT+TAB might be of help.

I’m thinking OP has N++ open and behind other windows and then with Explorer double-clicks associated .txt (for ex.) file…and finds that N++ opens the file into a tab but doesn’t bring N++ to closest to user in the Z order?
I don’t associate my files that way so I can’t easily test, but I do have a custom “Edit with N++” right-click option I set up in Explorer. Opening a file with it does in fact bring N++ out from behind all the other windows.

.txtfiles are associated that way (so double-click works), and when I have Notepad++ behind other windows and double-click the
.txtin the Windows Explorer, Notepad++ does come to the front as well – even if that file is already open in Notepad++. The same works if I right-click and pick my all-file-type RClick menu item.
Sorry, @Tyler-Rosolowski ; if we cannot replicate your circumstances, it will be harder to help us. If you could show us your registry entries that run Notepad++ for associated files, and go into the Notepad++ ?-menu, Debug Info > Copy debug info into clipboard and paste it here, we might be able to see if there’s something obvious.

i can confirm that behavior - in win 10 enterprise
if you run npp as Admin - it will not bring up front new file on opening
if you run npp as non admin - it will
