Stop EditPlus Creating .bak files

KB ID 0000825 


I use EditPlus 3 a lot for editing firewall configs, and just taking notes. But freshly installed it has the annoying habit of creating .bak (backup) files for every file you work on. I tend to keep the notes I’m working on on my desktop, so this can clutter it up with annoying icons.

EditPlus 3 bak files


1. Launch EditPlus > Tools > Preferences > Files.

EditPlus 3 Disable bak files

2. Untick ‘Create backup file when saving’ > Apply > OK.
