Save and transfer (import) your Notepad Plus Plus macros easily

If you have recorded some macros with Notepad Plus Plus it’s certain you wouldn’t like to lose them!

Unfortunately N++ won’t provide an export / import mechanism, but you can overcome this problem easily.

N++ saves your macros in a file called shortcuts.xml, which is located at \Users\YourAccountName\AppData\Roaming\Notepad++

Just copy this file and save it somewhere safe, where you are also keeping other system / apps configuration files. When the time comes to reinstall Windows or for any reason to need a backup of your N++ macros, just copy and paste this file to its similar location in your new installation, and enjoy!
