Keyboard Shortcut in Windows Context Menu
At one point (earlier this year, at latest) the “Edit with Notepad++” option in the right-click menu used N as a shortcut. This no longer happens; it has no associated shortkey now. I don’t know if this is a N++ issue or a Windows issue. Is there a way to get this back? Otherwise when selecting with keyboard I have to down arrow multiple times.
My debug info:
Notepad++ v8.5.4 (64-bit)
Build time : Jun 17 2023 - 20:42:45
Path : D:\Program Files\Notepad++\notepad++.exe
Admin mode : OFF
Local Conf mode : OFF
Cloud Config : OFF
OS Name : Windows 10 Home (64-bit)
OS Version : 22H2
OS Build : 19045.3086
Current ANSI codepage : 1252
I most recently updated N++ today; prior to that my latest version was 8.3 and the option wasn’t available with that either. I don’t recall when it disappeared.
I’m not getting the shortkey option on my Win11 laptop, either, but I’ve only had that a month and don’t know if it was ever an option with 11.
FYI: It’s usually called an “accelerator” not a “keyboard shortcut” when it’s used for picking an entry out of a menu.
With Win11 actively fighting against applications putting their actions in the main right-click context menu, I don’t know whether there’s any way anymore for an application to define its preferred accelerator key for the context menu, sorry.
@PeterJones Alright, thank you for the reply; and the FYI, that’s good to know.
