  • I have a shortcut in my SendTo folder with the following properties: C:\notepadplus\notepad++.exe "%1"

    When I go to a text file for example and right-click... Send To ... the shortcut for NotePad++ I get the following:
    - A tab called "new 1" and an ERR: Could not open file "". window.
    - When I click the "OK" button on the ERR window, the "new 1" tab disappears and the text file that I right-clicked on is then opened properly.

    Anyone else getting this initial ERR window when using a SendTo shortcut for Notepad++?  This is happening on both Win2000 and WinXP.  There are currently no file  associations with NotePad++.

     
    • From original poster:
      More info - I did not use the executable installer for Notepad++.  I just unzipped the npp.3.2.bin.zip file to a directory.

       
    • Thank you.  That solved my problem.  Now I will be using Notepad++ more and more.

      Just use a normal shortcut:

      properties:
      c:\notepad\notepad++.exe

      no "%1"
