Editing the notes

Post by Focksie »

When I click on the notes, rainmeter automatically opens up my notepad program.

What I want to do is have rainmeter open Notepad++ on default

tips?

You need to associate the .txt extension with Notepad++ in Windows. Rainmeter is just "opening" notes.txt with the program associated with that extension.

This can be done in "Settings" in Notepad++ or by just right-clicking a .txt file in Windows, saying "Open With" / "Choose Default Program" and browsing to Notepad++.exe, checking "Aways use the selected program..." and clicking OK.
