Even though all Windows editions come with a built-in text editor, there are numerous users who prefer to rely on third-party applications for creating or modifying their office documents due to the limited feature set of Notepad.
PowerWrite is one of the many software utilities that you can use as a replacement for Notepad or even WordPad.
It installs smoothly and it comes with a highly intuitive and user-friendly graphic interface that can be operated with ease even by the less tech-savvy users.
You can start typing your texts within the distraction-free main window of PowerWrite, then copy, cut or paste fragments to your liking. You can also activate Word Wrap so as to get a better overview of your text.
When working on your projects within PowerWrite you can choose the font types, sizes, colors and effects you prefer - you should first experiment with several of them until you find the one you like best.
However, you can rely on PowerWrite only to open the RTF files stored on your PC, since currently it does not support TXT format. Furthermore, you cannot drag and drop a file so as to explore its contents, you can only use the dedicated Open function.
All in all, PowerWrite is a nifty little application that has the potential to become an alternative to Notepad, but it has not yet reached this state, despite being freeware and having a user-friendly GUI.
Its drawbacks are sure to drive away even the novices, not to mention the experts, who can definitely find more feature-packed text editors out there without searching too much.
