Notepad++ A Powerful Replacement For The Simple Notepad

notepad++

Notepad++ is simply put, Notepad on steroids.While primarily targeted at the power software developer, Notepad++ is packed with every feature you might have ever wanted( or not even thought possible!) in a text editor.

Notepad++ is a free and open source source code editor which supports several programming languages running under the Microsoft Windows environment. The project is hosted on SourceForge.net, from where it has been downloaded over four million times.

Things like multidocument view, where you can edit many documents at the same time, text zoom in and zoom out make Notepad++ a powerful replacement for the simple Notepad.


Software developers will love the support for syntax highlighting and the ability to add language specific function lists.


An amazing feature in a product like this is the macro recording and playback function.Click the record button, type in a string of text, click the stop button and save it as a macro with a hotkey combination.

The next time you want to use the same text just hit the hot key combination.


This flexible product is worthy replacement if you are looking for something with more flexibility and versatility than Notepad.
