I was searching a way to delete my search and replace history on Notepad++.
By browsing through the files of the said application I was able to do it by editing some of it's configuration files and here is what I did:
- First, locate the application data folder of notepad++. This should be located at
C:\Documents and Settings\[REPLACE_WITH_USER]\Application Data\Notepad++
For Vista or Win7 it should be somewhere on
NOTE: This is a hidden folder so it is advisable to make the hidden folders viewable.
- Locate and open
config.xmlto notepad for editing. Take note use notepad not notepad++, for some reason, editing it on notepad++ doesn't save the updates you'll be doing.
- Delete the lines with tags:
to remove, "search" history:
and to remove "replace" history
<Replace name="[REPLACE_WORD]" ..../>
config.xml. If Notepad++ is open, close and then re-open it again.
