error: right click on notepad++ to open file

ShellExecute failed (2): Is this command Correct?.

is caused by having notepad++ ‘run as administrator’ option turned on, according to a search engine.

solution :

Find notepad++. Exe, right-click on it, go to the compatibility TAB, uncheck “run this program as administrator”, and finally “apply” and “ok”.

my environment: Windows10, Windows 7 estimation is the same method.

Notepad++ is the default software installation directory for disk C.
