Notepad is a very simple text editor included with every Microsoft Windows release. It can only edit plain text, and will interpret any file opened as plain text. This makes it suitable for editing source code, even without any features specifically made for source code editing.

Supported Formats

Notepad only supports plain text formats in the ANSI, Unicode or UTF-8 encodings. In addition, it only supports the CR-LF line endings.
