RantNotepad++: Intrusive Uninstall Needs To Kill Windows Explorer Pin

This is hilarious and annoying at the same time.
Went to uninstall Notepad++ on Win10 (so I could install a newer version) and it warned me that it needs to kill Windows Explorer.

Uh, yeah, sure...kill the Windows shell. I don't use it anyways. Roll eyes | :rolleyes:

Hilarious!!! Annoying!!!

Who's responsible? MS?!? Notepad++?!?

And, yes, I know notepad++ probably installed some shell extension but I don't care.
Things should just work right! Hmmm | :|

EDIT
I continued the uninstall and it was not a joke, it killed Explorer. Hmmm | :|
