    Sometimes if I have a file already opened in Notepad++, when I attempt to do an 'Edit with Notepad++' from the context menu, or try and drag and drop a file into it, it'll just do nothing and won't open it. I imagine it's related to the file I may have already open, but this occurs with various files and the only workaround is for me to close the current file I have open and then do it again. Has anyone else seen this or might know a workaround?

    You're probably running N++ as administrator (under UAC in Win7/Vista).  Restarting as a standard user will clear the issue.
