I am not a programmer, just a user who finds Notepad++ very useful.
I want to open Notepad++ twice for separate projects. Each would open with different shortcut (icons). I've read about opening separate instances of Notepad++ using -multiInst and/or -nosession and have not figured this out. I either open the original instance or a blank instance (with no obvious way to open the first, much less the second).
Someone had suggested loading Notepad++ twice but all that happens is an over-write. I tried creating a sub-directory in Notepad++ with the same results as above.
Using Windows XP and NotePad++ 220.127.116.11
What am I doing wrong?
