    Why can't I assign Notepad++ to TXT files?


    I prefer Notepad++ to standard Notepad but I cannot select it as default app for TXT files.

    I am using Windows 10 (the very latest).


    How can I make that selection?


    Thanks

    :)

    Drag and Drop txt to Notepad won't work


    Normally, if I have notepad open, I would be able to click and drag an appropriate file into notepad, like a txt file, and it would open in notepad. Now, when I click and drag files into notepad, nothing happens.
    Any Suggestions.

  3. Creating desktop icon for Notepad txt file

    I used to have recent notepad files listed under "Most Used" in the Start menu. How can I restore desired files to the "Most Used" position, or how can I create a desktop icon for a specific Notepad txt file?
