Notepad++ - Open Source Tools for System Administrators

Notepad++ is a clever source code editor and an alternative to the Notepad that comes with Windows. Other than the basic Windows tool, the software features WYSIWIG printing, bookmarks, support for tabs, macros, launch switches, auto-completion, syntax highlighting, zoom and multi-document support. While the application has a long list of features with all coding tools displayed in the toolbar, it maintains the look and feel of a lightweight editor with much of the software window dedicated to content.

OS Support: Windows 95 and up
