Joe James: Can you please help me… I just started using Notepad ++ and I wanted to take all my microsoft word documents and search for /archive and replace it with /archive/filter-by/video and yes it did it but, when I go and open any of the files in the folder, I get an error screen saying “WORD EXPERIENCED AN ERROR TRYING TO OPEN THE FILE, TRY THESE SUGGESTIONS” and it lists
*check the file permissions for the document or drive
*make sure there is sufficient free memory and disk space
*open the file with the text recovery converter

What do I do now? Please Please Please help me- I am not proficient in using Notepad++.
Thanks a million in advance for your help.

Excellent video. To the point, thought out, has useful references like the text shortcuts overlayed or together on one screen. The rest of your videos look like that while covering a varied range of material. Subscribed.

Great tutorial. I just wanted to let you know the easiest way to open a new document is to click on the blank space to the right of the last tab. It will create a new document tab.
