Settings aren't being saved after I close Notepad++

  • I always had Notepad++ installed in my C drive and never had a problem. After I had to switch the OS a few times and, therefore, reinstall all my programs, I started installing them in my D drive. As I was making it somewhat “portable”, I checked the Don’t use %APPDATA% option while installing Notepad++, so my settings wouldn’t be deleted if I formatted the C drive.

    Now, I don’t know why, but my settings simply aren’t saved. I change my default theme from the Style Configurator, I modify some keyboard shortcuts, and if I close the program and open it again, it’s all back to default.

    What can be happening? I am an admin, by the way, and I did try opening with admin rights to configure it, but it still doesn`t work.

    Thank you very much for your time,

    Please share your ?-menu’s Debug Info. That will tell us lots of useful information, including what version you are using and where it’s expecting the config files to be.
