Hello & Thanks ,
I notice that Notepad++ writeup has this comment :
"Alternatively, X-Notepad++ and Notepad++ Portable clean the local folder."

Pls , what does "clean the local folder" mean ?

Thanks

Many wrapper programs function by cleaning up what a program leaves behind. I think the cleaning that this program suggests is the way it throws the config files into a directory separate from the EXE, readme, etc.

IIRC, Notepad++ used to have a hard coded recovery directory at C:\N++RECOV which would be left behind on the local machine if Notepad++ crashed. Not sure if that is still the case.

It could also be a reference to '%LOCALAPPDATA%'... :?
