On Windows, we have Notepad – and many of us have often wondered why they couldn’t ship something that had more features than notepad does. There are a number of alternatives to Notepad out there, and a lot of them are too rich with features. But not Notepad GNU.
Notepad GNU is very light – 1.1 MB, and packs all the features you’ll need to edit text files and write short programs.
Syntax highlighting (a must for any programmer), line numbering (no more following text with your finger on the screen!) and even support for bookmarks makes this a must-have text editor.
Download Notepad GNU
Notepad GNU can be downloaded from it’s Sourceforge page. It’s distributed as a .rar file, so you would require WinRAR or some other archive manager to extract it.
