Notepad++ – Configuration – Backup


Like Lionel Richie I am still stuck on Notepad++.

Still crazy after all these years.



As I per-used Windows Explorer noticed corresponding backup files.


Let us address.


In Notepad++

  1. Access Settings \ Preferences
  2. From the left panel, access the backup tab
  3. The “Backup on Save” group-box, offers three options
    • None
    • Simple backup
    • Verbose backup
  4. In our case, we were set for “Simple Backup“.
  5. We changed to None
