Many MS Windows users may have noticed that the standard notepad is usually an uncomfortable program to use. An excellent substitute for that is the Notepad++, a completely free text editor that supports all syntaxes used in coding and has more editing tools. For instance you can view multiple documents simultaneously without closing any window. You can also edit the same document from two different locations by opening it in two windows. The program will automatically transfer any changes made to the other open window in real time.
