I know this is completely unreasonable feature for a text editor to have, however, when I edit various files, I almost always have to do it at the end of the file.

Is there a feature in Notepad++ that will move the cursor, caret and focus to the bottom of the file?

Or perhaps open Notepad++ with a command-line parameter that forces cursor to the bottom

No. But you have two options:

  • Notepad++ is GNU. Get the sources, patch, build.
  • Open the file, hit Ctrl+End

Ctrl+End is reasonable easy and convenient. –  deddebme Oct 22 '09 at 18:08

If you open files from a shortcut or command line, you can add flags to specify the line number and column to place the cursor, e.g.

"notepad++.exe" -n12 -c34 license.txt

(note no spaces between -n/-c and line/column numbers).

To open the file at the bottom, use a very large line number, e.g.

"notepad++.exe" -n999999 filename

This goes to bottom indeed. But unfortunately it scrolls almost at the end of the file. This is odd. –  Odys Dec 1 '12 at 11:16

Notepad++ (5.8.6 at least) has an annoying bug which scrolls to the physical line (as determined by newline characters) without taking into account the number of lines shown onscreen. If word wrap is enabled and any of the lines above this line wrap, it can be pushed offscreen, even though the cursor is at the right place. –  Gnubie Dec 3 '12 at 12:48
