Description Never heard of Notepad++? https://notepad-plus-plus.org/ Transcript In this video, I’ll be showing you how to open multiple instances of Notepad++. That is, multiple windows.

The reason is of course that there are tabs, so the program doesn’t the logic in opening multiple copies of itself. But of course there are cases where this could be useful. In this particular case, I have two files, list a, list b. To view one, I have to hide the other, so naturally, there is a benefit to having both open at the same time, and I might actually want that. To get that done, I simply need to click Run,…
