How to automatically insert closing html tags in Notepad++

Notepad++ is a great editor for web pages, but for some reason it doesn’t auto-complete closing html tags by default. Here is how to turn this time saving feature on:

Written instructions:

Notepad plus plus doesn’t complete your html tags by default. So if we create a div here, we need to make sure we also put in the closing div tag.

This is easy to fix. Simply go to the settings menu and choose preferences. Find the auto-completion settings and turn on the html slash xml close tag checkbox. Now when we type in our opening tag, notepad plus plus will automatically insert the closing tag. Nice!

Thanks for watching and see you next time on!
