NotePad++ Review – a Simple little Text Editor - The Best
Notepad++ (Notepad Plus Plus) is a FREE powerful opensource, feature-packed text editor that more or less has everything Notepad needs but lacks (it can replace Notepad in Windows). Supports Multiple languages.
Loads of options:
Behind a clean face and busy but efficient toolbar, Notepad++ is a wonder of features and options. You can choose to use it as a simple text editor for plain text, and it is absolutely perfect for this, for taking notes, for creating plain text for use in HTML og Word documents where you don't want any text formatting initially. I use it ALL DAY for everything.
One cool thing is you can have many text files open simultaneously and easily switch from one to another. That's the feature I like the most.
