Does anyone know how to edit msbuild targets files in Notepad++ with intellisense?

I often edit my msbuild files with Notepad++.However, I miss the intellisense I get when I do so in Visual Studio. Does anyone know how to have the same experience in Notepad++?

"I also have the same problem and finally found the better option is to use Visual code. The steps are:

Install the [MSBuild project
tools|vscode:extension/tintoy.msbuild-project-tools] in the VS code
The .msbuild extension is not initially tied up with editor (Only
.proj, .targets, .props, .tasks are supported by default)
Change the language mode (Ctrl+Shift+P) to configure file association
Choose your desired language as MSBuild and you are done.

The details can also be found from Visual Studio Market Place"
