Editors' Review

Notepad++ is a popular application that combines the functionality of the built-in Windows programs Notepad and WordPad; the basic text-editing features of Notepad are augmented by some of the more advanced formatting tools present in WordPad. Notepad++ Portable is a smaller, portable version of Notepad++, with the same features as the full version in a package that can be used on the go.

Like the regular version of Notepad++, Notepad++ Portable sports an attractive interface, with menus and buttons across the top. Although anyone with the need to edit text could conceivably make use of the program, it's geared specifically toward developers who need a versatile tool for working with code. Notepad++ Portable supports a wide variety of programming languages and encoding schemes, and there are advanced search and view features. We also liked the fact that Notepad++ Portable can automatically launch Chrome, Firefox, Safari, and Internet Explorer, letting you quickly preview code in the most popular browsers. Support for macros and a variety of plug-ins round out Notepad++ Portable's features. Although anyone who works with code regularly should find the program intuitive to use, it's also backed up by extensive online documentation and a user forum. Overall, we were impressed with the array of useful features that Notepad++ Portable offers, and the fact that it can fit on your USB drive or other portable device makes it all the more attractive. We highly recommend this program to any who's ready to start coding in an environment that's designed just for that purpose.

Notepad++ Portable comes as a ZIP file. It's accessible after extraction with no need for installation.

    "Portable version is not the same as the normal one!"

    January 14, 2010   |   By br0wzer

    Version: Notepad++ Portable 5.6.4

    Pros

    Has all the benefits of notepad++ plus it's portable ==> no need for installation (can be used through a usb memory stick or cd/dvd etc.

    Cons

    The fact that there is no installation makes it not useful if you plan to make it the default editor for some files. In that case just use notepad++ not the portable version

    Summary

    Notepad++ is a great free text editor with syntax highlighting for many programming languages, lots of plugins, macros etc etc. I was using ultraedit until I discovered this program and never looked back!

    "Does not Install"

    January 06, 2010   |   By LuckDragon Q

    Version: Notepad++ Portable 5.6.4

    Pros

    None, can't install it without debugging which is too much effort for this app

    Cons

    can't get it installed with reading the site and install wizard screens, etc it is not possible.

    Summary

    should be a good app but if it fails to install (can't write to directories under C:\Program Files\Notepad++) so i can't recommend it.
