How to install or upgrade

The easiest way to install this plugin is by using the Plugins Admin. From the “Plugins” menu, choose the “Plugins Admin”. Search for “Snippets” plugin, choose “install” and follow the instructions on the screen.

To manually install the plugin, copy all the files in archive to the plugins/NppSnippets directory in the Notepad++ installation directory typically in the Program Files directory. You may need to create that directory. Then (re)start Notepad++.

When you automatically upgrade through the Plugin Admin your database is not touched. If you are manually upgrading at least replace the existing dll. It is up to you if you override your own database with the template database provided in the archive. If you have not changed existing snippets or added your own, it is recommended to use the database in the archive.
