Plugin Manager removed from Notepad++

I needed the compare plugin today. You used to be able to select the Plugin Manager under Plugins -> Plugin Manager. But it was gone 😦 It turns out it has been removed from the standard installation and has to be installed separately. I haven’t been able to find out why. Here quick instructions how to install Plugin Manager.

  • Download the latest version of Plugin Manger from GitHub. Make sure you download the correct version 32 or 64 bit depending on the version of your operating system.
  • Unzip the file.
  • Copy the two directories to the Notepad++ directory. In my case C:\Program Files (x86)\Notepad++.
  • Restart Notepad++.

Plugin Manager is available again under Plugins -> Plugin Manager. Yeah!
