Notepad++:The Enhanced Notepad (Must Have)

One of the most useful application to be ever bundled with Windows is the Notepad. There is no single person who haven’t used Notepad at least once. Notepad creates simple, no-frills, text files where you can scribble down small notes, to do list, website urls, anything that needs to be written down. You can open files of any extension on Notepad to view their contents. You can create your own files of any extension on Notepad too. You can copy an html code into Notepad and save it with .html and it becomes an html page. Similarly, you can copy a C program into Notepad and save it with .C to create a C program file. Indeed, it’s the most versatile application ever created. How would you like to include some yet more powerful features to Notepad? Enter Notepad++.
