A new tutorial titled Replace the Windows Notepad with a Better Notepad was added by BleepingComputer.com. Please use this topic to discuss any aspect of this tutorial.

A brief excerpt of the tutorial can be found here:

Damn you Microsoft! I am a notepad addict. If you look at my taskbar at any
time and you will see at least 5 notepads, usually a lot more running at one
time. Why? Because it is fast and small I use it to keep notes, to do lists,
phone numbers, write code, search and replace, etc. The reasons are endless....
What are some of the things I do not like about Windows Notepad:

Does not handle large text files well.

Does not show line numbers next to each line
Does not support advanced search and replace features.
Does not open text files from other platforms in a readable manner.
Can't change the background or foreground colors.
No good indent support

So what are our options? Replace it with a freeware notepad replacement.

We hope you find this tutorial helpful.
