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!

Surface Pro 4 shutsdown when I click the on/off button

When I pressed the on/off on my Surface Pro 4 running Windows 10 it would shut down! Really irritating.

After searching around for a while I found the setting under System Settings that controls the behavior of the on/off button.

  • Open Control Panel > Power Options > System Settings
  • Change the action when the on/off button is pressed to ‘Sleep’.

That’s it. Another problem solved!
