Notepad++ is a free text editor with features not available in the standard Windows text editor. It’s made specifically for editing source code.

The application has a tiny footprint and loads quickly, and although it was created to be a substitute for Notepad, it has much more to offer. Simple details like line numbering and syntax highlighting make it excellent for programmers writing code, and the tabbed layout allows you to work with many projects at once without having to launch additional instances of the application.


Notepad++ may be used to record and replay macros, as well as bookmark portions of big texts for quick access. Multiple documents can be viewed at the same time for comparison purposes, or a document can be cloned ready for editing while keeping the original version. The program recognizes a variety of coding styles, from C++ and Java to HTML and Perl, and multiple documents can be viewed at the same time for comparison purposes.

This is a very versatile tool that will come in handy for any coder, but it can also be used as a more powerful text editor.
