It is very easy to install plugins for Notepad ++! You don’t need to download or import anything. The Notepad ++ text editor supports a wide variety of plug-ins that help to speed up and to improve the work you do with the program.
To install a plugin, select “Plugins” in the program menu, then “Plugin Manager” and “Show Plugin Manager”.
Then check the plugin you need and click “Install” in the Plugin Manager window that opens. You can select a plugin to view a brief description of its functionalities.
After you install the plugin and restart the program, the plugin installed will be displayed in the “Plugins” menu, where you will be able to change its settings.
