Ghost Typing

Ghost typing can be used to launch Notepad++ with an auto-typing text. Use command line arguments -qn, -qt or -qf to trigger it.

Syntax

notepad++.exe -qnEasterEggName

-qn: quote by name.

EasterEggName: the name of easter egg. Use %20 to replace space character.

notepad++.exe -qtText [-qSpeedX] [-lLang]

-qt: quote by text.

Text: given text. Use %20 to replace space character.

notepad++.exe -qfContentFilePath [-qSpeedX] [-lLang]

-qf: quote by file.

ContentFilePath: The path of file, absolute or relative. Use %20 to replace space character in ContentFilePath. The content (in ASCII or Unicode) of the file will be shown.

-qSpeedX : optional, won’t be applied on -qn. Use this flag if you want to control your display speed. X could be 1 (slow), 2 (fast) or 3 (fastest).

-lLang : optional, won’t be applied on -qn. It will make ghost typing apply the syntax highlighting of Lang of your choice.
