Reinvent Notepad

If you work on a Windows-based computer, Notepad should be your friend (find it in Start—> Programs—> Accessories). Easily write yourself text notes, edit web pages, or any type of system files.

But, as with anything, there is a new generation of Notepad’s out there. A few have quickly replaced Notepad for me:

  • Notepad2—great enhanced Notepad-esque program. Free.
  • Notepad++—more features than you can shake a stick at. Free too.
