Notepad++ 5.3.1

Bookmark and Share
Many people use Notepad for editing simple text documents and program/webpage code because it is small and fast. The disadvantage is that it lacks many features that would be very useful, especially when looking at programming code.

Notepad++ is designed for this purpose and so comes with lots of useful tools, including colour coding special words in code.

Installation is easy with an option for installing to a USB key and making it the default viewer when viewing the source code of web pages in Internet Explorer. The latter is particulary useful trying to troubleshoot problems.
