Get Notepad2 – Better Notepad Replacement for Windows

Most of you will be surprised if i tell you that i have written this article in Windows Notepad because its light and simple application which can be re-sized to a small window and made use while writing articles. But there have been few problems with the inbuilt Notepad which comes with most Windows Operating Systems. Here are some of the problems which come before us.

  • Cannot handle large text files. This problem comes when i try to open txt files which are sized in few Mb’s and the Notepad application would just hangup. This means that its time to move from your favorite application to some other software.
  • You don’t have any advance search and replace features which is offered in other text editing software.
  • Cannot open files which are meant for other platforms, something which Microsoft Word handles most of the times.
  • Does not allow you to customize the data by adding colors in the background and foreground.
