All Tabs Removed
I never used to have this issue, I would update Note ++, and when it relaunched, all my previously opened tabs would be there. Now when I update, ever tab is closed (gone), the only tab is the list of change log for the update. If this is going to be the case from now on, then can I please have a directory location where the open tabs are stored.

Firstly since you are on the Notepad++ forum, not another possible Note++ one, maybe you would like to call it by the correct name, or as is often used, NPP.
There is a FAQ post here that can guide you to find those (unsaved?) tabs.
Upgrades are not intended to “remove” tabs, however sometimes issues can arise causing problems like this. What is interesting to note is that you have no idea where your tabs are. Possibly you aren’t even saving them as real files. If so you are in dangerous territory and at very real risk of possibly losing (valuable) information if you do not take heed of the recommendations in that FAQ post.
@Terry-R Really, I don’t really think its that important to type the full name out, everyone knows what editor I’m talking about. (2) Yes I have all my tabs saved, I just don’t like finding them, and have to manually load each one. This is now two updates in-arow that has removed all my opened tabs.
@Kendall-DeMott For most people, the tabs are preserved when upgrading Notepad++.
The tabs are stored in the Session.xml file and normally the tabs are automatically re-opened when Notepad++ is started. Normally the Session.xml file is in %AppData%\Notepad++.
But, as Notepad++ does not seem to be finding your Session.xml file when upgrading or updating we have to assume that there is something non-standard about your setup or how you are installing/updating Notepad++. It’s going involve a bit of guesswork.
