This identical question has been answered, but unfortunately the answer is a bit over my head :( EDIT: way over my head.
What is a batch file, should I just copy the code (which is Greek to me) directly in or might I need to modify it, and what is a path/how do I put the batch file in the path to Notepad++
What is that "NPPExec" plugin, what is a dll file, and why do or do not I need it? And if I need it, what do I do with it and where do I get it?
For those of you familiar with Notepad++, how do I create these keyboard shortcuts that everyone is saying to create?
Thank you all in advance, I have already made much progress in LaTeX, largely because of the help from this site. Slowly but surely!
