@donho Resopnding to the v8.5.2 Release notes message asking for bugs to be reported here?
Windows 11 v22H2 OS build 22621.1413
Processor 12th Gen Intel® Core™ i7-12700 2.10 GHz
RAM 16.0 GB (15.7 GB usable)
System 64-bit operating system, x64-based processor
With any new document, select Save as… open an existing directory and click on New Folder. This causes Notepad++ to crash.
An exception occured. Notepad++ cannot recover and must be shut down. The exception details are as follows:
Type: Access violation
Exception address: 0x00007FFCEF1759BS
Notepad++ crash analysis
Failed to create dump file ‘C:\Progrm Files\Notepad++\NppDump.dmp’ (error 5)
This occurs wherever I try to create a new folder through Notepad++ (Desktop, My Documents, D:\ drive, anywhere) and has only occurred since the last update.
Hope this is useful.
Thank you for your report.
I cannot reproduce the crash at all.
Could you provide your Debug Info via menu

on windows 11, where the old context menu from 10 is enabled, the mouse menu icon open in notepad has disappeared, since the new windows 11 contest menu does not suit me.
I understand it happened because of the support of the new menu.

What do you means “the mouse menu icon” exactly?
A screenshot helps for the better understanding.
Also, please provide your Debug Information via menu “?->Debug Info…”.

Just for the record, on this machine, I’m running

and “Edit with Notepad++” still appears in the Explorer context menu - I suspect that’s what he means by “the mouse menu icon” - the same as it always has. However, I haven’t made any attempts to force N++ to replace Notepad like many of the people here.
Full disclosure - I have been attempting (and failing) to get the W10 Notepad (instead of the new W11 version) to be the default opener for several file types, but I don’t think those efforts would affect this one way or the other.
@donho I think where AK says “on windows 11, where the old context menu from 10 is enabled” may be important. AK’s done something like this: https://www.laptopmag.com/how-to/get-the-windows-10-context-menu-back-in-windows-11
@Graham-Norris This may be the original surce for that trick: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/all/restore-old-right-click-context-menu-in-windows-11/a62e797c-eaf3-411b-aeec-e460e6e5a82a
For Me installing NPP 8.5.2, the context menu only appears for the user who installed NPP. If I log into the same computer after installing/upgrading to v8.5.2 from 8.5.0 the second user does not have the context menu.
@Jerry-CRC Here is the debug info from the user that does not see the context menu

I had the same problem as @Jerry-CRC . Simply installing over the old version of http://download.notepad-plus-plus.org/repository/MISC/nppShell.TEST16/ did not work. Uninstall old version and install version from http://download.notepad-plus-plus.org/repository/MISC/nppShell.TEST16/ and the menu is there!
Same as @donho. Installing on top of v8.5.0 I still had no menu. Still no menu after a reboot too. After uninstalling and re-install 852TEST16 I have a menu with the second user.

We use SysPrep to build WIM images for redeployment of the OS. We’ve included NotePad++ for years, but got the following message with 8.5.2:
SYSPRP Package NotepadPlusPlus_126.96.36.199_neutral__7njy0v32s6xk6 was installed for a user, but not provisioned for all users. This package will not function properly in the sysprep image.
I downloaded 8.4.9 instead, and had no problem. I didn’t try the versions in between.
Not sure if it’s new context menu issue, but could you try the packages:
If it is, the binaries above may fix your problem.
Edit: I’ve create the concerning issue here:
@AdventurerKun Have you done a registry update to make Windows 11 use Windows 10 style context menus? (See my previous post.)
