"File to large" when trying to open with Notepad++

What is the problem? When trying to open in notepad ++ either Octo 17 or 18 to fix the wifi settings, I get the error "File to Large to Open".

What did you already try to solve it? Nothing. If I knew how to fix it, I wouldn't be here

Hello @tekrsq!

What file exactly do you want to open?

You have to burn the image to a microsd card first, then open the octoprint-wpa-supplicant.txt file to edit it. You can't open the entire image file.

Take a deep breath, I can tell you are frustrated. There are some great tutorials on how to get octoprint up and running. You can start with the instructions right on the download page:


THANK YOU, SIR !!!!!!!! That was exactly what I needed. I'm sure I'll have more questions as I play with this thing. Thanks again !!!!!! BW: You were right...I was VERY frustrated, lol.

You wanna know how I knew that? You sounded just like I did. Like at any moment you're about to throw the darn thing out the window. :grin:
