Open in Notepad++

Build status

A Visual Studio extension that adds a menu command that lets you open any solution, project, folder or file in Notepad++.

Based HEAVILY on Mads Kristensen's OpenInSublimeText extension.

This extension is for those times where you have a project open in Visual Studio and you want to be able to quickly open it in Notepad++.


In order to use this extension, you must have Visual Studio 2015 or 2017 as well as Notepad++ installed.

You can download Notepad++ for free.

Solution Explorer

You can open any solution, project, folder or file in Notepad++ by simply right-clicking it in Solution Explorer and select Open in Notepad++.


The extension will automatically find notepad++.exe when it's located at Notepad++'s default install directory. If it's installed at a custom location, you can easily change it in the settings.


For cloning and building this project yourself, make sure to install the Extensibility Tools 2015 extension for Visual Studio which enables some features used by this project.


Apache 2.0

You can’t perform that action at this time.
