I just updated to the latest Notepad++ and for the first time enabled the compare plugin from the list of plugins shown on the Notepad++ desktop.
My computer screen went black the first time I tried using Compare, and I lost all input capability; no keyboard, no mouse.
Hitting the power button to restart the computer, the Notepad++ screen showed again, with both files, and I cancelled out of the restart.
Attempting to scroll on the second file immediately blacked out the screen again, and I had to hard-restart.
I don't understand what this is about; the plugin was selected and installed from inside Notepad++ itself, from the list, so I assumed it was a working plugin and would be safe to use.
Rather than generate a long expletive acronym about this, I figured to just ask here at the plugin forum what the "heck" is up with this computer-disabling "compare" "plugin."
Anyone have a clue?
