Files History



  • I raised what it history keeps to (15), problem is I have my usual terms I use all the time, then you do a few oddball searches, and when Notepad is closed, it forgets the ones used a lot, and retains some of the oddball ones. That’s why it would be nice if you could just open the drop-down window, highlight the one you don’t want anymore, and hit the KB Del key.
    Is there anyway to delete items of of the search history window? Or a way to put often used phrases in there like favorites list, etc.
    Then I notices the Notepad ++ and Admin mode keep different search histories, it would be nice if they were synced (same).

    If you use them “a lot”, wouldn’t they be in the 15 ?

    Not on-demand, no.

    Or a way to put often used phrases in there like favorites list, etc.

    This is kind of a frequently asked for feature.
    Sadly, no one has come up with a great idea for implementing it, or perhaps no developer has tackled it.
    I think a workaround is to keep a file tab dedicated to such “phrases”.

    Notepad ++ and Admin mode keep different search histories, it would be nice if they were synced (same).

    That seems like it would be a security breach.
