    Need A Little Notepad++ Help

    Can someone tell me how to clear the memory/cache of the "Find" and "Find & Replace" functions in Notepad++? I'm getting quite a long list there.

    No, it's not the end of the world, but it is bugging me. Appreciate your help.

    You'd need to open and edit the config.xml file. Location depends upon the version being used - installed or portable.


    Set the defaults for the highlighted entries to zero to clear the list.

    Using Installed Version 7.5.6. Your suggestion got me going in the right direction. After resetting those values, I had to clear these entries:

    <Filter name="" />
    <Replace name="" />

    Then it all went to operating "properly".

    Thanks for the help. It is appreciated.
