Can't Read File/Folder Names in Workspace Window



  • I just re-installed 64-bit NP++ on my Windows 10 machine. My previous installation worked fine, but now the background in the workspace pane is black, so I can’t read the file or folder names (black font on black background). I don’t see a way to set colors. How do I fix this?



  • Another mystery solved. Apparently the download page on the NP++ site gave me a slightly older (and wrong) version. I un-installed it. Then went to Cnet.com to download their 64-bit version of NP++, and now all seems well again.

    Looks like some work is needed on the links on the NP++ download page.

    Could you be more specific? The downloads available at the official site are the only official downloads of Notepad++. Specifically, https://notepad-plus-plus.org/downloads/v7.8.2/ has the v7.8.2 released in December. There have been no newer releases. Do you believe there is a typo in one of the download links on the v7.8.2 page? Or do you think that the v7.8.2 available there is not the “real/final” v7.8.2?

    The newest 64-bit Notepad++ I can see in the cnet downloads is the older v7.8.0, from October. I have not compared the hashes to determine whether it’s a valid official version or some custom / out-of-Don’s-control repackaging (my work blocks cnet downloads).
