Default directory not being remembered across sessions

    I have default directory set to remember last used directory but after I close Notepad++ and open it again and try to open/save a file it starts in C:\Program Files (x86)\Notepad++ every time; it simply will not remember my last used directory from the last session and it's a directory I use often. I have to click Libraries and drill down into 5 folders again. It's very frustrating and I do not have this problem with other apps.

    Please let me know which setting to change to fix this (or a file to change or maybe this is a bug?). Thanks.

    Do other setting changes get forgotten thais way?
    The bug is called "security" in Microsoft parlance. M$ thinks you should not alter files in C:\Program Files, and thus quietly disregards your changes.
    Installing N++ outside C:^Program Files is a simple cure-all. You can also attempt to take ownership of the N++ folder and its subfolders, this works as well.
