"Does exactly what its name says"
-Works easily and quickly
-Doesn't trip some malware software to reset it to Notepad.exe every boot
-Allows every program that automatically opens notepad to see text files in your preferred and usually more powerful text editor.
Some overaggressive security software won't allow you to change notepad from default text editor and don't have the ability to exclude or disable that function. This version fixes that for most security software I have used.
I used this for text editors and HTML editors and it is simple and is very handy if you use alternate text editors more than Notepad.exe
