I added a new item to the Run menu.
I now want to edit/delete those settings I added.
How can I do this?
If you have added to the Run menu during the Notepad++ session, close Notepad++ and re-open it.
Open shortcuts.xml in Notepad++. First look for it in your %APPDATA%\Notepad++ directory. Only if it is not there, look in your Notepad++ installation directory. I strongly recommend making a backup of the file first, before changing it.
(If you have configured Notepad++ to be the default program to open XML files, you can simply double-click shortcuts.xml in Windows Explorer.)
The <UserDefinedCommands> section holds the Run menu commands. The <Macros> section has the macros. I think the key codes for alphabetic characters is their ASCII decimal equivalents (A-Z is 65-90). You can open an ASCII chart in a separate tab by creating a new document and selecting "TextFX > TextFX Tools > Insert ASCII Chart or Character".
To delete a command, find the corresponding text, then remove the entire line that starts with " <Command name=" followed by your text and ending with "</Command>". It likely wraps if you have Word Wrap turned on.
You will have to save the file and close/re-open Notepad++ for the changes to be effective. --Joel
Thanks very much

No that's not the case here. I see the shortcuts.xml file but it's 3 months old. I just made a change to Run and the Command tag does not show up. Even if I add a command it doesn't show up under the Run menu. Where else would another shortcuts.xml be? I checked in MyDocuments and the registry. No luck.
Did you check in %APPDATA%\Notepad++ or in Notepad++ install directory? --Joel
