I liked the old context menu shortcut, before it was removed and re-added. That one appears in the top section of the context menu and says Notepad++. The new one appears much farther down and says Edit with Notepad++. What versions had the old context menu item (in case I need to re-install Notepad++)?
Did you mean something like this?:
Same place, but the data for that key looks like this: "C:\Program Files\Notepad++\notepad++.exe" "%1" <-- that is a number one, not a letter L
The "%L" is for long file names,
with "%1" only 8.3 names are used!
