The cause of that problem may be the design that you are using. In case you have set the Notepad++ to run as an administrator then that tags the executable to run with elevated privilege not considering how it will be started. To work around that problem you will need to do the following:

  • You will need to right click on the notepad++.exe file;
  • And then you will remove the run as administrator check box.
  • You will need to probably put it there because you constantly edit UAC protected files.
  • After that, you will need to copy notepad++.exe to another name in the same folder, for instance NotePad++_Elevated.exe.
  • Once you have done that, you will need to right click and set the copy to run elevated.

Hello,

I suppose the following method will certainly help you to get rid of this problem.

1. First you need to uninstall, Notepad and make sure that you completely remove it from your system.

2. Now re-install Notepad, you can also go for the latest version as you are reinstalling.

3. While re-installation change the installation path by removing ‘++’ from the install directory. Substitute ‘++’ with PP (C:Program FilesNotepadPP”).

4. Also, uncheck the option that says to not use %Appdata% and complete the installation.

I hope this information helps you.
