Add "New Notepad++ file" in Windows11 context menu?

Hello, maybe I’m wrong, but I remember with my old Win 11 installation, I had a “new --> notepad++ file” or something like that in the context menu, that you’ll have when you right click on desktop.
Now I have the usual “text document” that opens the windows notepad.
p.s. I use Windows in italian, sorry if the function has a different name.

When Windows 11 creates a “New File” for a plaintext file, it will show the icon that is currently associated with .txt, and will give it the name of the .txt filetype. So if you choose in Windows to always “Open With” Notepad++ for a .txt file, it will generally change the name and icon (in that New File submenu, and in Explorer directory listings) to reflect the default application for
.txt. But because Windows is Microsoft, it doesn’t always, and sometimes fights you. It’s a quirk of the OS, and nothing controlled by Notepad++.
