'Open folder in Notepad++' context menu entry
Dear Notepad++ community,
I’ve fine-tuned a small Windows extension that adds a context menu entry when you right-click a folder, to Open folder in Notepad++.
You can either download the ZIP archive or clone with git:
git clone https://gist.github.com/bab5acee1f0a47dbc0f5002325741ff4.git
install.cmdand Run as administrator or read the instructions in the README to install/ uninstall.
I’m really not interested myself (so I’m not going to look), but for others that might be interested…what does it mean to “open folder with Notepad++”? Does it mean Open folder as workspace ?
@Alan-Kilborn Thanks for the pointer, indeed it opens the folder as workspace.
The script also sets an environment variable
NPP_PROJECTwhich can be used in plugin scripts like NppExec and PythonScript.
v1.1 - Updates:
.regfile formatting issues
- Changed context menu entry text to Open as workspace in Notepad++ to better align with Notepad++ terminology
- Tested and fixed some previously present issues with space characters in paths
- Added version requirement (Npp 7.8+) to readme
- Added license info (MIT)
