    I really don't like notepad++ as an editor, is there any ways of removing this ?

    @jreloz you can add the following line to laragon.ini inside usr folder.
    Example for visual studio code:
    Editor=C:\Program Files\Microsoft VS Code\Code.exe
    And don't forget to delete notepad++ folder inside bin folder.

    What is your editor to replace notepad++?

    @indra I want to replace it with a built-in notepad. I just add the following line

    1. Editor=C:\Windows\System32\notepad.exe,
    2. remove notepad++ folder from laragon bin directory
    3. Restart laragon. Nothing happens.

    @jreloz : Just delete things you don't want. In your case, delete bin\notepad++

    @jreloz you're right, doesn't work with default notepad even with administrator rights.
    By default this Editor=C:\Windows\System32\notepad.exe method is not working :(

    @indra , @jreloz : How about

    Editor=notepad.exe

    @leokhoa still not working with Editor=notepad.exe.

    I have tried using bat file, for example notepad.bat with the following code:
    @echo off
    start C:\Windows\system32\notepad.exe
    Then we can use Editor=pat/to/notepad.bat.

    Above method is working to open notepad, however, the problem is notepad not opening file unless we provide the path to file like start C:\Windows\system32\notepad.exe C:\Dev\laragon\usr\laragon.ini.

    @indra For anyone reading this topic and still wondering how to make Notepad work with laragon, your method proposed was almost complete.

    Create a notepad.bat file and have the following code in it:

    @echo off
    start C:\Windows\system32\notepad.exe %*

    You were missing the argument allowing for all the arguments to be passed to notepad, including the path of the file you want to open.
