Notepad X 2.1.2
A powerful, tabbed text editor that can successfully replace Notepad
The clean and well-organized look brings all features at one-click distance, thus making the app appropriate for all user categories, be they rookies or more experienced.
The tabbed layout is indeed a great addition because it provides an easier document management system, allowing users to work with multiple files at once, but from the same window.
Additionally, the program comes with syntax highlighting, offering support for the common programming languages out there, such as Java, PHP and HTML.
A favorite manager is also available, which means that users can always bookmark the documents they use the most for a seamless editing process. But if there’s something that really deserves to be praised, it’s the configuration screen.
Besides configurable parameters concerning the icons, highlighters and toolbars, Notepad X also comes with plenty of settings for hotkeys, which means that most of the features can be easily accessed via a keyboard shortcut.
You can for example open a new tab, save the document, highlight a syntax or enable line numbers from the comfort of your keyboard, without the need for any mouse click.
Notepad X is very friendly with hardware resources and doesn’t hamper system performance in any way, while working flawlessly on every Windows version on the market.
All in all, Notepad X is a decent Notepad replacement that comes with a helpful interface and plenty of configuration options that could really please professional users. A help manual is also available in case someone needs more information on a built-in feature.
