DAMN NFO Viewer 2.10.0032.RC3

The BEST utility for viewing text files containing ASCII Art (NFO/DIZ/TXT)
Opening files that contain ASCII art is a task that Windows can do by default, but there are some specialized tools that offer a bit more to anyone who is interested.

DAMN NFO Viewer is a tiny application that can lend you a hand when trying to open documents in formats like NFO, DIZ or TXT files. Many users rely on Notepad to address this problem, but this particular software solution offers some extra features.

The installation process doesn't pose major problems and takes very little of your time. The application has a simple interface and a basic settings menu that enables you to configure a couple of options to make it even easier to use.

Furthermore, DAMN NFO Viewer has a handy copy-on-select function that automatically copies the text you select, just like the feature we've seen in mIRC some years ago. Additionally, it comes with drag and drop support, a separate feature to set background and text colors, as well as word wrap support, similar to Notepad.

The good thing about DAMN NFO Viewer is that it has a customizable appearance, so you can change some visual settings to make it a bit more appealing. In addition, this utility sports shell integration and has Unicode support, as well as three word wrapping modes and smart line breaking.

To cut the long story short, DAMN NFO Viewer is a tiny tool that does exactly what its name suggests: helps you view NFO files that contain ASCII Art and other types of information. The application is definitely worth a try and in case Notepad isn't exactly what you're looking for, be sure to give this little but powerful program a go.
