While Microsoft Word is the standard word processor for most people, it's a pretty big application, and there are many instances where a basic text editor will do just as well. Notepad .NET is an attractive and simple program for those times.

Most applications like this tend to look quite ugly, so the slick ribbon style interface of Notepad .NET is especially pleasing. The basic functions, across the top of the window are copy/paste, new and save etc, fonts, some basic formatting, search and replace, and then print and appearance. The search and replace feature is useful for quick editing of texts, and the ribbon of features itself is really clear and easy to use.

Notepad .NET also supports tabs, so you can easy work on more than one text concurrently. This is particularly well done, as a right click gives you the option of opening a new tab and also duplicating your current tab - also useful for editing things. Files can be saved as TXT, RTF or HTML files. Word users will probably miss spell checker, as there is none here, though some users might find that liberating!

Notepad .NET is an attractive, functional text editor that makes a nice alternative to Windows WordPad.

Notepad .NET supports the following formats

RTF, TXT, HTML
