Hi,

In notepad++ i opened one log file. I clicked control F to search a string. I clicked 'Find all in current documet'.

I expected to see one window opening at bottom giving all different search results with different occurences say 15 times. when i click particular occurence it should take to that line.
Now i am not seeing that result window at bottom. When i click 'Find Next' that works fine.


i saw some link on my problem i did not get the solution they are talking about and which short cut i have to use to retrieve back. I was not clear what task bar they are talking, is it laptop taskbar or notepad task bar?

Hi,

You have to open file first, and only then perform search. It seems you don't have opened yet (bottom screenshot) in your Notepad++ shows that is nothing opened.
Tab "new 4" is the tab which refers to opened file. Then you click CTRL + F and perform search. So after success search you should see your Notepad++ screen split into 2 horizontal screens, the bottom one should show found results.

Don't know where the minimised box shown on your link was. Sorry. Unable to run Notepad++ at the moment because I don't have a Windows machine to hand.

This isn't a Java®‑related question, so I shall move you to the general computing forum.
