comment Can't drag files from Explorer into Notepad++ running as administrator on Windows 8
It also runs as admin after it updates a plugin. I ended up here before and then I looked at the window title bar. Yup Admin. Fix: Just restart it.

comment Looking for way to download all the free software I need to setup my PC all at once . .
Cheers @Mehper. I used a combination of Ninte & AllMyApps. Ninite was easy - AllMyApps is great in theory but the versions it has are not the latest. Chocolatey looks promising.
