In total, its creators explain that this application can work with more than 50 of the most common programming languages worldwide, so you can be sure that you will find compatibility with the one you are interested in. It is not a minor detail that, beyond the support for programming languages, it also allows us to work with plain text, which might interest certain professionals.

Once you have downloaded and installed Notepad++, you cannot only modify your files but also open several documents simultaneously and even move from one to another whenever you want. This is because we find a navigation system that uses the classic tabs, thanks to which we do not have any limitations to open or minimize each document.

This is essential when comparing texts, as users often look for this function. Each line has its numbering so you can compare them from one file to another without difficulty. We also have tools that allow us to increase the font size in case we want to see some complete detail within the codes.

Other options that Notepad++ offers us then have to do with the syntax coloring, the search functions for parts of codes and their replacement, the markers to make all kinds of customizations of the codes, the auto-completion that allows us to avoid the errors that usually appear in these cases, and so on.

We even liked to see how it is possible to customize different keyboard shortcuts, so you will not need to use the mouse to move between the contents of Notepad++, something essential to waste as little time as possible during our editions.

And suppose everything we have mentioned so far has not convinced you. In that case, you should know that we also support different extensions and plugins to significantly expand the editor's functions, making it adapt to the type of use we intend to give it.

The user interface of Notepad++, for its part, has everything we are looking for in a software of this type, taking into account that it is as simple as functional, even colorful, thanks to the use of the main window that occupies most of the screen with minimal menus on top. In this way, moving between the different contents is not difficult, allowing us to focus most of the time on the codes we are working on.

When we stop at the main positive aspects of Notepad++, we have to say that there are several, starting with the possibility of using all kinds of keyboard shortcuts to take advantage of it, wasting as little time as possible. Besides that, we have a full-screen mode, the possibility of adding posts-it to keep track of them, and many plugins to improve the service.

And what is the worst thing about Notepad++ or what we liked the least? In that case, we have to say that for those who come from the Windows notepad or other simple notepads, you may notice the jump because it is much more complicated to use. That is to say; you will have to spend some time getting to know its functions to take advantage of each of them, so do not be impatient if you want to enjoy a tool as powerful as this one.

In summary, we consider Notepad++ one of the best applications available for all those looking for a professional-level notepad, above average. We find all the functions we could expect and some that are added to this type of service, so the versatility and adaptation to our needs make it a real Swiss army knife in its segment.
