Disable EditPlus backup .bak files

I have been using Editplus as a high-end alternative to notepad,  and ofcourse it is meant for much more. When you install a fresh copy of Editplus, you will find (.bak) files saved along with the actual file that you may edit. It is supposed to be helpful, and well may be, but at most times its a pesky task to remove them, as chances of using them are highly unlikely.

EditPlus is a text editorHTML editorPHP editor and Java editor for Windows. While it can serve as a good Notepad replacement, it also offers many powerful features for Web page authors and programmers.

To disable creation of the backup files (*.bak) while editing in EditPlus, follow this step:

  • Go to Tools -> Preferences -> ‘Files’ category and turn off  ‘Create backup file when saving’ option. You can also opt to save all the back up files in a chosen destination if you wish to, by clicking on ‘backup options’.
