Plugins for Notepad++

(Not extensions, not addins, not add-ons, not apps, not packages... Plugins!)

Plugin Config path is:

$env:APPDATA\Notepad++\plugins\Config

In main menu, go to "Plugins" -> "Plugin manager"

Note:

There's also "Settings" -> "Import" -> "Import Plugins"

You can use that facility with a NotePad++ plugin DLL that you've downloaded separately.

What If I don't have "Plugin Manager?"

It's no longer included with Notepad++ because it includes sponsored ads that some people didn't like.

See https://notepad-plus-plus.org/community/topic/14496/no-plugin-manager/3

download it here:

https://github.com/bruderstein/nppPluginManager/releases

Unzip it and copy the extracted files to your notepad++ plugins and updater folder. (which, as described about is:

$env:APPDATA\Notepad++\plugins\Config

Updating plugins...

These plugins need to be updated, apparently.

  • DSpellCheck
  • NppFTP

And when I try to update them I get this message...

---------------------------
Plugin Manager
---------------------------
An update is available to Plugin Manager.  It is *strongly* advised that the Plugin Manager is updated before any other plugin is installed or updated.  Would you like to update the Plugin Manager now?
---------------------------
Yes   No   Cancel   
---------------------------

I choose "Yes", I get a UAC dialog, NotePad++ restarts and then the updates have still not been installed.

I try running Notepad++ as admin... but the exact same result occurs.

So instead, when confronted with that dialog, I chose "No" -- and then the plugins that need updating are indeed updating succesfully.
