Restoring Notepad++ in the right-click context menu “New” menu

It seems that everytime Windows is updated, the option to create a new plain text file with Notepad++ gets removed from the context menu in Explorer. Easy fix:

  • find an existing .txt-file in Explorer
  • right-click -> Open with -> Choose different app
  • from the list, select Notepad++ and press Always

That’s it! ymmv.
