Easily run Notepad++.exe instead of Notepad.exe on Windows 7

Well, the following download allows you to easily do so.

I assembled this stuff  based on the information provided by rubinx.
Should work with all versions of Windows since Windows 2000 (but only tested on Windows 7).


  • Download
  • Uncompress anywhere
  • Right-click on “_Register Notepad++ParamProxy.cmd” and choose “Run as administrator”

That’s about it.

  • Make it works even if Program Files is not on drive C
  • Make it work with 64-bits editions


  • v0.1 2010-08-30
    + First release
