Notepad Text Editor

Notepad is a simple text editor for Microsoft Windows and a basic text-editing program that you can use to create and edit documents.

Notepad is a common text-only (plain text) editor. The resulting files (typically saved with the .txt extension) have no format tags or styles, making the program suitable for editing system files to use in a DOS environment and, occasionally, source code for later compilation or execution, usually through a command prompt. It is also useful for its negligible use of system resources; making for quick load time and processing time, especially on under-powered hardware. Notepad supports both left-to-right and right-to-left based languages. Notepad does not treat new lines in Unix- or Mac-style text files correctly. Notepad offers only the most basic text manipulation functions, such as finding and replacing text.
