Notepad++ Portable





Notepad++ is a free (as in "free speech" and also as in "free beer") source code editor and Notepad replacement that supports several languages. Running in the MS Windows environment, its use is governed by GPL License.

Based on the powerful editing component Scintilla, Notepad++ is written in C++ and uses pure Win32 API and STL which ensures a higher execution speed and smaller program size. By optimizing as many routines as possible without losing user friendliness, Notepad++ is trying to reduce the world carbon dioxide emissions. When using less CPU power, the PC can throttle down and reduce power consumption, resulting in a greener environment.

  • Syntax Highlighting/Folding:
    • Supported languages : C, C++, Java, C#, XML, HTML, PHP, Javascript, RC resource file, makefile, ASCII art file (extension .nfo, doxygen, ini file, batch file, ASP, VB/VBS source files, SQL, Objective-C, CSS, Pascal, Perl, Python and Lua.
  • WYSIWYG:
    • If you have a colour printer, print your source code (or whatever you want) in colour.
  • Style Configurator:
    • For each style in every supported language, user can change the background/foreground colour, the font, font size and font style ( bold or Italic ) via the Style Configurator Dialog.
  • User Defined Syntax Highlighting:
    • It allows user to define his own language : not only the syntax highlighting keywords, but also the syntax folding keywords, comment keywords and the operators.
  • Multi-Document:
    • You can edit several documents at the same time.
  • Multiple VIews:
    • You have two views at same time. That means you can visualize (edit) 2 different documents at the same time. You can visualize (edit) in the 2 views one document at 2 different positions as well. The modification of document in one view will carry out in another view (i.e. you modify the SAME document when you are in clone mode).
  • Regular Expression Search:
    • You can search one string in the document by using the regular expression.
  • Full Drag 'N' Drop:
    • You can open a document by drag & drop. You can also move your document from a position (or even a view) to another by drag & drop.
  • Dynamic Position of Views:
    • The user can set the position of the views dynamically (only in 2 views mode : the splitter can be set in horizontal or in vertical).
  • File Status Auto-Detection:
    • If you modify or delete a file which opened in Notepad++, you will be notified to update your document (reload the file or remove the file).
  • Zoom In and Zoom Out:
    • That's another fantastic function of Scintilla component.
  • Multi-Language Environment:
    • The Chinese, Japanese and Korean Windows environments are supported.
  • Bookmark Creation:
    • User can just click on the bookmark margin (located right side of line number margin) or type Ctrl+F2 to toggle a book mark. To reach the bookmark, type just F2 (Next bookmark) or Shift+F2 (Previous bookmark). To clear all bookmarks, click the Menu Search->Clear All bookmarks.
  • Brace and Indent Guideline Highlighting:
    • When the caret stay beside of one of those symbol { } [ ] ( ) , the symbol beside of caret and its symmetric opposite symbol will be highlighted, as well as the indent guideline (if any) in order to locate the bloc more easily.

  2. Hi
    After updating to the new version (overwriting an existing version) unfortunately, all plugins, settings and custom user folders within the application are deleted. All configuration must be done again. Is it possible to do, that user settings are not deleted during installation?
