Notepad++ is a tabbed source code editor and Notepad replacement with a customizable interface. Includes source code "folding," allowing users to quickly reduce and expand sections of code to see the overall document. In addition, it features multi-language syntax highlighting, auto-completion, Perl-compatible regular expression search/replace, macro recording and playback, document map, etc. The program can access a long list of plug-ins via an easy-to-access menu with even more features and functions.

Alternatively, X-Notepad++ and Notepad++ Portable clean the local folder.

@webfork: Yes, that solved it. I just copied the plugin folder from the old Notepad++ to the new one. Good for me i kept a backup.

I use the following version (on XP) and see no need to update it.
If you're having problems try the old version (your problems might then be attributed to an updated OS such as Windows 7 or later, which I refuse to use, especially the buggiest of them all, Windows 10)
I see comments above about file extensions, but I've NEVER had that problem, don't those people do the "save as" button? This version has that.
When on Linux I don't need this, as it has its own text editors that are better than anything Microsoft ever issued, to start with!

"December 19 2010-- Notepad++ v5.8.6
In this new release, a minimalist package is added.
It contains only the files needed to run Notepad++ with no plugins, no themes, no autocompletion API files, no auto-updater and no localization files.
The package is much smaller and Notepad++ will run faster."

My favorite editor for multi-tabbed editing. Feature-rich.

I have no problem downloading the app. Try clearing your browser's cache and cookies.

The current download link (below title) links to a patch (24.0.1284.2.7z) and not the paf.exe

The direct dl link I found is: https://sourceforge.net/projects/crportable/files/ChromiumPortable_56.0.2902.0.paf.exe/download

@joby_toss

Clearing cache / cookies makes no difference. Tried in several browsers, same result. No worries, I`m sure it will fix itself soon.

I found the way to remove these findings: First delete windows Prefetch entries "C:\Windows\Prefetch" this will delete all the .exe files in LastActivityView. Next Run RegSeeker2.5.7 and select privacy Key on the left side of the menu, and at the bottom select "Clean stream MRU/streams Keys". That's all there is to it.

You can download RegSeeker2.5.7 on the Portable Freeware website

LastActivityView Download link not working.

@Allen: Link tested ... works fine.

Hi,
One more time, it's impossible to download Portable version. We are pulsed from page to page and finally landed on the original one.

IanFromBarrie on 2016-07-20 15:57

Same experience as @Guido76 at 11:45AM EST. Looking back over the comments, it seems that Piriform has got web platform problems. Hope that sort of sloppiness doesn't carry over into the actual product.

An alternative link to the Softpedia download has been added to the entry.
