Editors' Review


Notepad++ Portable brings together the best of Notepad and WordPad, so that people don't have to continue to choose between them.


Clean installer: The program installs very quickly and doesn't burden you with myriad options to check or a bunch of documentation to read during the install process.

Highly functional: This is a very powerful program in a stripped-down package. It consumes barely any system resources and yet provides you with all of the functions that you need.

Multi-document support: You can keep multiple documents open at one time, and they will display in a tabbed interface.


Strange menus: When you click on one of the items in the bar, the menu appears offset, rather than dropping down where you expect it to, under the item. This makes navigating through the menus confusing at first glance.

Bottom Line

If you find yourself switching back and forth between WordPad and Notepad or use both programs on a regular basis, you can make life easier by downloading Notepad++ Portable. The program is lean, clean, and effective.

Easy to use, helps to make sure coding is correct, opens many files that notepad or dreamweaver will not.


I have no cons with this product, keep up the good work!


Great Tool I recommend to anyone.

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

January 14, 2010  |  By br0wzer

 |  Version: Notepad++ Portable 5.6.4


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.


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


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


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


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


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.
