Use Replace.

Under Search Mode, change it to "Extended"
Then in find what, use

Open in new window

and in Replace with, use

Open in new window

In Extended Search mode, \n = newline, \t = tab, and a google search should reveal what the other options are.

Notepad++ has a macro recorder, I use it for cases like this. Start recording, use 'Find' and/or cursor movement to locate your ":" delimiter, press DEL key and cursor DOWN. Then end recording and use CTRL-SHIFT-P to 'replay' your macro once, or until end of file (see the macro menu).
