Overall Satisfaction with Notepad++

Notepad++ was widely used in my organization. I like it as it supports most of the commonly used languages. Additionally, it has some beneficial functions which are a must-have for a software person.
- User-friendly interface
- The 'Extended' feature in the 'Replace' window. Check it. It's beneficial
- Working with XML and HTML files is so much convenient in Notepad++
- The languages are in alphabetical order which makes it easy to select it and syntax highlighting is a great feature
- very easily customizable
- It clearly shows the line spacing and end line symbols which helps in testing of fixed file formats
  • While testing, there where some formats which required specific line and column numbers to test along with a similar test, Notepad++ on one side clearly shows you the line and column number whereas it also highlights the same text as selected one in the file. This sounds like a straightforward function, but it dramatically helps while you are testing a very complex a large file that has a particular format.
  • Double click to open tab. Multiple tabs, along with the option of various views, I was in quality assurance, and this helped a lot as it allows us to compare files very easily and quickly.
  • It saves the file automatically; you don't have to worry about your data even when the system crashes.
  • I like Notepad++, and it fulfills the purpose for which it is designed.
  • ROI was definitely positive.
  • It had undoubtedly saved a lot of time and effort in quality assurance. In turn, it is adding value and profit to the project.
It supports various languages, and I'm more comfortable with the Notepad++ and its UI.
  • The online support is excellent. Some websites like StackOverflow are beneficial and answers most of the questions.
  • The queries posted in Notepad++ site communities also they were resolved quickly.

Would you buy Notepad++ again?


Notepad ++ wraps text, saves it, and does all text editor functions. So, Notepad++ is well suited for everyday usage and testing as well (various file formats and commonly used programming languages) and also comparing files, but for software project development, it can be challenging as you can't install frameworks or libraries.
