How to edit files using Notepad++ over SSH File Transfer Protocol

Notepad++ is a GPL licensed source code editor for Windows operating system. I use it rarely due to Linux related habits, but my friends are using it all the time, so there must be something about it. Taking this into account, I will briefly describe how to edit files using this editor over SSH File Transfer Protocol.

Open Plugins > NppFTP > Show NppFTP Window menu.

Add new profile.

Provide a name for new profile.

Provide IP address, connection type and username. Close window afterwards.
