    Hello there,

    I'm myself habits to use very oftently keyboards shortcuts to handle many actions/functions under Notepad++. Each time I update N++ I loose all my keyboards shortcuts, and then I must re-affect them. It takes time to do this, since I didn't find how to backup these, I do not update N++ since the version 6.1.6 ! Does anynone knows the solution or a tips ?

    With my best regards,

    Hi Loreia2,

    I get it, it works !

    At the beginning it doesn't work since the "shortcuts.xml" file I was lokking for was from "C:\Program Files\Notepad++".
    This file is not used by N++ in my case and the sections were right empty (eg <ScintillaKeys />).

    The file I have to backup is in : "C:\Users\MyAccount\AppData\Roaming\Notepad++"

    BR and many thanks, I'm now updating !
