Editors' Review

Notepad Plus Plus is a Notepad replacement with an eye toward programmers, although it should also appeal to the casual user who wants a cross between Notepad and WordPad. Notepad Plus Plus has some noticeable differences from WordPad. Support for tabs is key, letting users manage different documents simultaneously. Line-numbering is important, too, a feature that nobody mucking about in C should be without.

The interface is much simpler compared with some of its competitors. A familiar row of icons with their mouse-over labels sits at the top, and one row of tabs is just below that. The rest of the screen is made of nothing but pure white space. All the coding tools live in the menu bar, with some represented on the toolbar. Users can compile and run macros, convert text to Hex, submit directly to W3C for validation, launch in Firefox and IE, and more. There's also a built-in spell-checker.

Choosing between Notepad Plus Plus and NoteTab Light probably will depend as much on layout as anything else. Although, forgive the pun, notably Notepad Plus Plus can not autoreplace Notepad, it's still an excellent Notepad replacement.

    "Great Text Editor"

    October 19, 2014   |   By scarycell

    Version: Notepad++ 6.6.9

    Pros

    It has many features; it is a tabbed program, user friendly, supports many programming languages. AND IT IS FREE. (As in "free speech" and also "free beer")

    Cons

    Really can't think of any.

    Summary

    Great for people new to programming and more advanced users. I'd recommend it to anyone looking for a good, free text editor.
