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,
