# Where are macros stored?

• Where are macros stored? Just installed Notepad++ on new computer. I’d like to go back to the old computer and retrieve my macros.

• Normally Macro are save in %appdata%\Notepad++\shorcuts.xml

• Hello Bob,

Depending of your N++ installation, the shortcuts.xml file, which contains a Macros section, should be located :

• in the %AppData%\Roaming\Notepad++ folder, if you used the installer ( the npp.x.x.x.Installer.exe file )

• in the same folder than you copy the Notepad++.exe file, if you used a ZIP or 7Z archive ( the npp.x.x.x.bin.zip or npp.x.x.x.bin.7z files )

Cheers,
