Is there a way to always force the tab bar to show? I go to Settings → Preferences → General → Tab Bar and uncheck hide, but the next time I open Notepad++, the tab bar is gone, even if I drag multiple files into the window.

What version are you using? I'm using 5.9.6.2 and I haven't this issue. –  SoMoS Mar 19 '12 at 16:49
    
I'm using the latest as of 2012-03-19... version 5.9.8 –  Phillip Mar 19 '12 at 16:51
    
Turns out this happens when I place the file asNotepad.xml into the Notepad++ executable directory. I'd like to be able to show the tab bar in Notepad++ when dragging multiple files into a Notepad++ window. But I would also like to open a new Notepad++ instance when double-clicking a file from Explorer. –  Phillip Mar 19 '12 at 16:52
    
i have the same problem. whenever i started notepad++ with -notabbar, the next regular launch has the tabbar missing. ok, just found this: sourceforge.net/p/notepad-plus/bugs/4288, known bug. –  peter Nov 26 '13 at 17:00

Open notepad++ with Run as Administirator and uncheck hide again, and restart notepad++ . The problem should be solved.
