Notes from install of Notepad++ (circa 2012). Your mileage may vary. The two most important things in here are the "F6" save_compile_and_download hot key and the setting of the larger print size (28) for our VI students. I intend to update and add more detail to this at some point. If you are reading this and have questions, contact us and it will accelerate the update process.
