Notepad ++ review by Team on 16.04.2015
Notepad ++  is a free (as in "free speech" and additionally as in "free beer") source code editor and Notepad ++replacement that supports several languages. Running in the MS Windows environment, its use is regulated by GPL License. Based on the powerful editing component Scintilla, Notepad ++  is written in C   and uses pure Win32 API and STL which ensures a higher execution speed and smaller program size. By optimizing as many routines as possible without losing user friendliness, Notepad ++  is trying to reduce the world carbon dioxide emissions. When using less CPU power, the PC can throttle down and reduce power consumption, leading to a more eco-friendly environment. Behind a clean face and busy but efficient toolbar, Notepad ++  is a wonder of features and options. One favorite: Default Directory has two choices, Follow current document and Remember last directory. Another: The "old, out-of-date" desktop icon is a setup option. It's possible for you to set Notepad ++  not to use %APPDATA% but instead to load or write config files from the installation directory; this is useful when running Notepad ++  from a USB device. Notepad ++  comes loaded with useful plug-ins plus a Plug-in Manager. But we could also select a startup option to load plug-ins from AppData -- a potential security issue that Notepad ++  simply recommends for experienced users.

Download and install Notepad ++ safely and without concerns.
