I have seen a tutorial entitled "How to replace Windows Notepad with a better Notepad", but it seems to be only for Windows XP or 2000. Is there anything about replacing the notepad in Vista? I don't like the notepad I have for various reasons: no background choices, no text size or color choices, etc. I use Notepad for writing letters, printing my own recipes, and other things that I would like to be able to do with a little more creativity.

EDIT: Moved to a more appropriate forum

I would suggest Notepad++ : http://notepad-plus.sourceforge.net/
Also another very good editor AbiWord : http://www.abisource.com/

One i've been quite happy with:


 rawcreations.net          @raw_creations

Current systems: WHAT OS, BackTrack-raw, PCLinuxOS, Peppermint OS 6, Kali Linux

and a custom Linux From Scratch server hosting a bunch of top secret stuff.

I use Notepad++ for text editing and AbiWord for documents editing. I find both to be superior products (and free!)
