I checked out the FAQ and searched Meta. Couldn't figure it out.

I'm wondering how to change the default save format in Notepad++. It's not in the docs. What I typically get when I ask Q&A communities about something software-specific is: "Why don't you just e-mail the distributor?"

I know a common response from Open-Source software developers is, "We're giving out something for free. Why should you feel it's okay to demand more?"

There are already 242 questions, so yes asking a software-specific question, even about Notepad++ is perfectly on-topic


Let me quote the FAQ real quick:

Super User is for computer enthusiasts and power users. If you have a question about …

  • computer hardware
  • computer software

(emphasis mine)

… so, yes, your question is on-topic :)

And please, don't refrain from asking questions just because they are specific. Just make them good questions that can be useful for others. Then you're good to go.
