Right-clicking file no longer maximizes Notepad++



  • From Windows file explorer, when I right-click a filename I get a context menu option to open the file in Notepad++. Until recently this action caused the file to be opened in Notepad++ and it also caused the Notepad++ window to maximize and come the front of the other open windows. This no longer appears to be the case. I have to actually click on the Notepad++ icon in my toolbar to maximize the window and see the file that’s been loaded. Kind of disappointing.

    So what did you do that it stopped working? Updated Npp?
    Updated windows? Installed some other app?
    What npp version are you running? (Can be seen as debug-info from ? menu)
