Whenever I double click a file to open in windows explorer while notepad++ is already opened, it will center and minimize the notepad++ window a little bit. This is annoying.

Any ideas on how to keep my window right side justified when I open another file?

I am using Windows 7, and just downloaded Notepad++ 6.2.3.

How does the Notepad++ window look when first opened, before you move it to the right and resize? Perhaps it's just getting reset to its initial size and position? – Karan Dec 27 '12 at 0:09
Yep, I think you are right. Still, how can I keep it from moving out of position once I do move it? – Hintron Dec 27 '12 at 7:00
Since it's most likely Notepad++'s fault, you can try asking the developers if they can fix the bug and not make it move/resize if a new file is opened and displayed in an existing instance. – Karan Dec 27 '12 at 14:37

Here's an easy workaround:

Just drag your files into the N++ window to open them (instead of double-clicking, right-click & open with, etc.).
