I wonder if there is a Notepad++ plugin that adds a "Google search" line into NP++ context menu (mouse right-click), so that I could highlight some text, then right-click on it, select "Search in Google" and a web-browser opened with the search page?
Install it and press F6 or select from the menu. See NPPExec in Menu.Write the following command in the box that appears. Then you may save it.
The selected word will be mapped to CURRENT_WORD. I have shown with Chrome. You may use other web browser as well.
I'm a little late to the party but this feature is already available and has been for a while now. I'm currently using NP++ 6.4.5. Go to Settings -> Edit Context PopupMenu. Click ok to the following prompt:
Editing contextMenu.xml allows you to modify your Notepad++ popup context menu. You have to restart your Notepad++ to take effect after modifying contextMenu.xml.
Add the following line to that file where you want the option to show up in the context menu.
<Item MenuEntryName="Run" MenuItemName="Google Search"/>
Save, restart NP++, sit back and enjoy searching Google from NP++
