    I use a win 7 computer

    I have a user password and NOT the admin password

    is there a version of Notepad++ that works completely from the USB drive and that can be installed without the admin password

    preferably something that does NOT need installation

    thanks in advance
    best regards

    Just get the zip or 7z package from the download page, extract it to a folder on your USB drive, and create an empty text file called doLocalConf.xml in that folder. Notepad++ will run from the drive and save all config data in its own folder.
