How to install plugins in Notepad for Windows 10


Let s see how to install and manage the useful plugins in the Notepad text editor to increase its versatility

As many of you may already know, Notepad ++ is a text editor that many would like Windows 10 to include by default, since it is actually a much more advanced and functional version than the known NotePad of the Microsoft system.

So we talk about a free third-party application that we can install from additional way on our Windows computer . Moreover, in addition to the large number of functions that we can find in the application of text editing once we install it, its versatility increases even more thanks to the possibility we have for add plugins to the program .

That is why if we have never taken advantage of this advantage of Notepad ++ , maybe do not know how to install and manage these plugins to which we mention, so below we will see how to do it.

Install plugins in Notepad ++ from the manager

For this type of tasks, the program itself incorporates a plugin manager that will allow us to control the arrival of these additional elements , and although in the last version of the application is called "Admin Plugins", it is exactly the same but with a different name . Thus, we can install these plugins by placing ourselves in the “Plugins” menu of the main interface , where we select the option called “Admin Plugins”.

It should be mentioned that here, included in the application itself, but without installing, we found a wide variety of these add-ons to increase the functions available of Notepad ++. Thus, once we access the corresponding section, we will only have to go marking the plugins that we want to add to the program so that they are installed immediately and we can use them in the editor by clicking on the "Install" button.

Install plugins in Notepad ++ without manager

Similarly, install a plugin without the mentioned administrator , it is quite easy, so the first thing we have to do is download it from the Internet, something that will normally be done as a compressed file that we must extract. In the event that it has a version of 32 and 64 bits , we must ensure that we download the one that corresponds to our system , so otherwise it will not work.

Thus, once downloaded and extracted, we must paste the unzipped file in the following location “% LOCALAPPDATA% \ Notepad ++ \ plugins ”, although if it does not exist on our system, you must paste the plugin files in the path “ C: \ Program Files \ Notepad ++ \ plugins ”; while if it is 32 bits it would be in “C: \ Program Files (x86) \ Notepad ++ \ plugins”.

After this, if we have the text editor open, we close it and execute again, so the new plugin should appear in the "Plugins" menu of the program. This means that with this second method, we can install any plugin for Notepad ++ that we find on Internet , even if it is not in its official repository , even if before we must ensure that it is safe and from a reliable source .
