Notepad++ open in new instance because I use multiple desktops
I need notepad++ t open in a separate instance each time I click the taskbar icon
I use multiple desktops in Windows 11, and currently if I click Notepad++ from a desktop, it jumps to the desktop where it is already open…
I need to have Notepad++ opened and separate on each desktop as I used it for different projects on different desktops…
Notepad++ doesn’t have that feature, though you could read the FAQ to see where feature requests go.
Alternatives / workarounds:
- Always Open New Instance option: might be too far in the multi-instance direction, but it would accomplish your goal
- use Open Session in New Instance option, and a separate session file for each of your projects
- have shortcuts on your desktop with the
-multiInstoption, and use that to start your new instance on each desktop
- use Move To New Instance and then move that instance to the right desktop
I’m sure there are several open issue requests for multiple desktop support.
Please seek them out and add your thoughts to one or more of them, rather than creating a new (basically duplicate) issue.
