Editors' Review

Download.com Staff Aug 12, 2009

TED Notepad provides users with a tool to quickly compose documents. While it has some excellent features, it also has a few missing pieces that make it an uneven experience.

The program's interface will look familiar to anyone who has ever used a computer's Notepad program. The program's large, open screen and command menus along the top will be second nature. To anyone unfamiliar, there is a useful Help file available. In many ways, TED is simpler than other word-processing software. Users just start typing and can alter the document using the menus above. However, we didn't like some of the limiting aspects of this program, such as its inability to change the font, size, and color of the text. However, for users unconcerned with that, there are plenty of other functions to love. The program offers all of its editing, tools, and search options as a menu or as a hot key, which is an improvement over some of the competition. One feature we enjoyed was the hot-key option to convert text from or to Unix or MAC files. This can be very appealing to users frustrated by difficult conversions of those types.

While we would have liked more control over the text, this freeware program proved to be a good match for users interested in speed and hot-key ease and we recommend it for those people.
