Remove the toolbar in Notepad++
Notepad++ is a great, free IDE for Windows. Unfortunately, its user interface is not exactly stunning. The icons in the toolbar at the top, for example, are as cryptic as Ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs. Since I don’t use the toolbar anyway, I figured out how to get rid of the toolbar and leave the text editor looking a bit cleaner.
We start with ugly notepad++:
Then we go to the Settings menu and select Preferences. In the dialogue that appears, the General tab should be selected by default. To the left side of the box, there are options to configure the toolbar. Check the box that says “Hide”.
Close the dialogue box and there you go, a cleaner looking Notepad++.
