Can I dock the "find window" popup in notepad++? I work with multiple screens and when I do a Ctrl F the find popup could be anywhere on 3 screens. I'd like to have it docked inside the main notepad++ screen, but I can't find the option anywhere.

Not talking about the search results, but the find window where you enter what you're looking for.

    You can't. +1 because it would be pretty cool if you could. However the Find window always shows up in the exact same spot you closed it at. So if you just remember to always leave it in one monitor at one position then it will always open there. – Insane Dec 10 '15 at 19:37

    That's what I found out. Though I'm always moving things around depending on the type of project I'm working on at the moment. Oh well, just another minor annoyance. – sdfor Dec 10 '15 at 19:39

Double click the title bar of the search results window and it should return to its default docked position

    This does indeed dock the search results window, but it looks like the question author wants to dock the find window (the one with the search options). Could you please adjust your answer to address that? – Ben N Mar 13 '17 at 21:59
