Notepad+ is a freeware text editor for Windows operating systems and is intended as a replacement for the Notepad editor installed by default on Windows.[1] It has more formatting features but, like Notepad, works only with plain text.[2] It can open text files of any size, and a single instance of the program can have multiple files open simultaneously. It supports dragging and dropping text within a file and between files, and supports multiple fonts and colours.[3]

Notepad+ is available from the company RogSoft. It was developed by Dutch programmer Rogier Meurs. It was first released in 1996.[1] Originally, it had the advantage of being able to open files of any size, because until 2000 Notepad could not open files larger than 64 KB.[4]
