By default, Notepad++ macros, styles, keyboard shortcuts are not saved in its install path, but in a junction path: C:\Users\[USER_NAME]\AppData\Roaming\Notepad++

  1. Press the windows button on your keyboard and type %AppData%, press Enter
  2. Go to the Notepad++ folder of your old installation and copy paste all the xml files (and plugins if you have them) into your new version of Notepad++

This should work. I've ported my Notepad++ styles between three different systems using this approach.
