Every time I close Notepad++ it asks to save files.

I remember a version that did not do this, it just closed and when reopened the unsaved documents were still there.

Is there a way to go back to this, without downgrading?

If it is notepad++ you set this to save to a default path by using Preferences>New Document/Default directory>Custom and mapping the location for default saves. this intern will stop the message you are seeing
