Notepad++ 6.4.5 disable Plugin Updates
Is it possible to disable Update tab from the GUI.
1- Launch the Notepad++ shortcut
2- Go to Plugins-> Plugin Manager->Show Plugin Manager
3- Under this there is a Update tab which has Update button as well.
Is there a way to remove the update Tab from GUI itself?
Yes there is. Notepad++ requires very little too work. They even have a minimalist version with just the basic code.
Do you need the plugins? If no, good news. Delete the 'plugins' folder and files from the applications directory ( C:\Program Files (x86)\Notepad++) and the 'update' directory and files. If you then start Notepad++ the plugins tab will disappear and with it the updater as well. Unfortunately just deleting 'updater' folder is not enough.
(to be sure I tested it again in 6.4.5)
