i change settings a lot. Now, i think I've played with Notepad++ too much. Now how can I reset the settings ?

btw, I don't want to uninstall, then install again. that's not so "superuser"-ish, right ?

The easiest way to reset to defaults would probably be to delete the configuration files. This also means you can back them up if you ever want them back.

Notepad++ uses the follwowing path for settings using a default installation settings:

%APPDATA%\Notepad++

In that directory there are several .xml configuration files. Remove the ones you want to reset and restart Notepad++.

This worked great with notepad++ version 6.5.4 –  avanderw Jun 30 at 11:47

Go to

C:\Users\Administrator\AppData\Roaming\notepad++

(type your username instead of "Administrator" in the above path)

Delete the file "stylers.xml".

Restart Notepad++

The answer is right. Just always remember about environment variables. %appdata% makes life all of us easier ;) –  Áxel Costas Pena Feb 11 at 16:04

It is easy to do using the following steps:

  1. Go to settings
  2. Go to style configurator
  3. Then you can see there is an option call select theme.
  4. Select default theme and save it.
  5. Close the notepad and restart.

This doesn't answer the question (until there is some Woo-Doo action behind this) –  nixda Jul 12 '13 at 9:50
