I was fiddling with Notepad++'s preferences in order to change the looks and a few other things. I'm not sure what I did, but now the 'Run in Chrome' etc options aren't in the 'Run' tab.

For example, the options found here:

Notepadd++ 'Run' Tab showing the Launch in 'browser' options

I've tried uninstalling and restarting my computer. All I had was Notepad++ was still in my start tab shortcuts but the icon was not a pic of Notepad++, but instead a white scroll/white script.

I clicked it and says the program is not in my computer. It asked me if I wanted to delete the shortcut and I clicked OK. It still did not delete it.

I went and downloaded the new Notepad++, but there's still no 'Run in Chrome' option in the Run tab, and the icon is still the white scroll instead of the Notepad++ icon.

    If you use F5 on in Notepad++ or Run... you can browse to Chrome or Firefox and it should launch in the selected browser. Make sure you've downloaded the correct Notepad++: notepad-plus-plus.org – Ryan Nov 4 '14 at 15:03

Im having the same issue, the only solution i've figured out is clicking file and open in default viewer. It should run in your default browser.
