Now that I can turn off the annoying Reload popups, I would like a quick way to manually reload the file I am working on in NotePad++ via the keyboard. Looking at the File menu, Reload from Disk does not have a shortcut. Is there a hidden shortcut that you know of or someway to map one built-in?

You can use the Shortcut Mapper under the Settings menu to assign a shortcut for this.

  1. Go to Settings>Shortcut mapper.
  2. Select the first tab (main menu)
  3. Find the "reload from disk" option.
  4. Put an unused shortcut.

I thought it was a good question. Questions with simple answers are not necessarily stupid. –  user12816 Oct 1 '11 at 19:45

While above answers are correct. It is already built-in : File >> Reload from Disk.

  • Shortcut: ALT+F l (ALT+F selects file menu and l selects Reload from Disk)
