How to quit Notepad++ softly?
In my system I have configured Notepad++ to start by default with the start parameter
--systemtray. But ´after a system restart the last settings of Notepad++ (or the all last words added to user dictionary) are lost, if I forget to close Notepad++ in system tray (via the context menu option “Close Tray Icon”).
So I need to quit Notepad++ softly. But how? With which parameter? Something like
notepad++ -quitwould be nice.
Then I can set in task scheduler what is automatically to do on system restart or on logoff.
In “Notepad++ Command Argument Help” such command “quit” is not available.
Thanks for help.
Try to use the
TaskKillconsole command without the
/fswitch. This sends a
WM_CLOSEmessage to the targeted process which likely is what you call a “soft quit”.
taskkill /IM notepad++.exeis not possible to close the Notepad++, if this is loaded in system tray. Only his windows would be closed, if it is open on the foreground, but not the process it self.
But thanks for trying it!
Maybe it is possibly to contact the author directly? And how?
thank you for the FAQ link, but I cant “simply, click on the green
New issuebutton, on the right”, because so one is not exist (all scripts are active in my browser). So I cant post new issue in this desk.
sorry it was my mistake - I tried to search for this button it in FAQ desk.
