Overall Satisfaction with Notepad++

It is commonly used by developers to create software, consume downloads and larger text files and as a day to day jot down tool for notes, thoughts and makes simple text work fairly straightforward. Opening larger files that often slow down in a text editor is a big reason why many began using it, but not use it for day to day notes.
  • Opens large text files gracefully
  • Makes it easy to jot notes and create simple text files
  • Auto saving is a big deal in development and note taking, and it does it incredibly well, even without a saved location
  • Easier splitview options
  • Spreadsheet view
  • Simple text editor
  • Easy note taking
  • Auto save
  • Just a all around small simple tool
  • Ease of use allows anyone to use it
I didn’t care for the way some things were handled in other programs I tried, and I’ve stuck with Notepad++ since.

Do you think Notepad++ delivers good value for the price?

I wasn't involved with the implementation phase

Would you buy Notepad++ again?


Notepad++ is great for simple coding and client side coding... I prefer Visual Studio for .net code behind work.
