Direct folders/Notepad++

  • I use direct folders to quickly access my latest projects. However when i go to save a new file and i double click and select a folder via direct folders, notepad++ gives me the following message;
    Which is the folder i have selected in direct folders.
    Is there anyway around this? Some setting maybe?

  • Please elaborate what a “direct folder” is? Do you mean links or junctions?

  • Direct folders is a pop-up utility that allows you to navigate to the most recent folders or a predefined folder

    To me it sounds like an effect from a setting in an older version of Notepad++ that isn’t present in recent versions, so I’m guessing it would not manifest a problem like you are seeing. Can you provide your Debug Info from the ? menu in the menu bar?

  • I have updated reently and it does appear to be working. I will make sure i record the Debug Info if it occurs in the future.
    Thanks you for your help

    Just to clarify here, you don’t record the “Debug Info”.
    Debug Info is a popup you invoke that has text describing things about your install of Notepad++; version #, operating system, what plugins you have, etc. There’s an option to copy it to the clipboard for pasting somewhere useful, like into a posting here.

    As I mentioned before Debug Info is found on the ? menu, on the far right of Notepad++'s menu bar. Traditional applications call this menu the “Help” menu, but N++ chose to call it ?.

  • Very sorry here’s the debug info

    Given your earlier comment of:

    It wasn’t really necessary for you to provide Debug Info now (since your issue is solved).
    I was just attempting to clarify what was meant by it, since your earlier reply seemed to indicate you didn’t know what it was.

  • I thought so. Thanks for your help yet again.
