How To Run Chrome From Within Notepad++

If you have recently tried to Run Chrome from within Notepad++ recently, you've probably encountered the same issue I did.  Chrome didn't run.

The fix is actually really simple.  Open up the Run box in Notepad++ and browse to your installation of Chrome.

ie.  C:\Program Files\Google\Chrome\Application\Chrome.exe

Select the file when you find it.  Now, the trick is:

  1. Put quotation marks around the path you see in the Run box. 
  2. Now, put 1 space after the closing quotation mark.
  3. Type this: $(FULL_CURRENT_PATH)
It'll look something like this:

Click Run.  If Chrome opens, click Save and set your hotkey.
