Using Notepad++ as Git Editor without affecting settings

I use and love Notepad++ ( as my go to simple text editor. I have been using it as my default editor for git for a few weeks now and have noticed some funny behavior.

Normally I run Notepad++ with the Tab Bar enabled like so

However when I use Notepad++ as my git editor I would prefer it to open in the most basic mode possible (mainly no tabs, and in its own instance) I simply want a text editor to log my commit messages and such. The relevant section of my .gitconfig is setup as follows

autocrlf = true
editor = "'C:/Program Files (x86)/Notepad++/notepad++.exe' -multiInst -notabbar -nosession -noPlugin"

Using this Notepad++ opens as desired when launched from git, however, the next time I launch Notepad++ normally, it loses my prior settings and does not display the tab bar anymore. It is real annoying to have to update this setting every time I want to use Notepad++ after it is launched from git. Any suggestions as to how I can have Notepad++ work in both situations without the settings affecting each other?


Get a portable version of Notepad++ ( and set up git to use that. In the Notepad++PE.ini file add:


Then use your normal Notepad++ installation with all your settings for normal work.
