Recover file history from Notepad++

While I was working my notepad++ crashed and of course I had not taken a backup in 3 working days. My heart stopped and was panicking as I was of the assumption notepad++ had no history. Well, I was wrong, it does. I found all file backups inn my AppData folder of my computer with time stamp of backup time. To access these files go to:

C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Roaming\Notepad++\backup

Hope this helps you too!

Notepad++ remove first or last character of every line

If you would like to remove the first character pf every line, use regular expressions in the find and replace option.

Find: ^.?(.*)

Replace with: \1

remove-first

 

If on the other hand you would like to remove the last character of every line, use also the regular expressions in the find and replace option but instead using the following:

Find: .{1}$

Replace with:

remove-last

 

Hope this helps!
