    Notepad ++ is a text editor and source code editor for use with Microsoft Windows. It supports editing with tabs, which allows working with several open files in a single window. The name of the project comes from the increment operator C.
    Notepad ++ is distributed as free software. Initially, the project was hosted on, where it was downloaded more than 28 million times, and twice won the SourceForge Community Choice Award for the Best Developer Tool. The project stayed at TuxFamily [fr] from 2010 to 2015; since 2015 Notepad ++ is hosted on GitHub. Notepad ++ uses the Scintilla editor component.

    Notepad++ is a free (as in "free speech" and also as in "free beer") source code editor and Notepad replacement that supports several languages. Running in the MS Windows environment, its use is governed 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, resulting in a greener environment.

    You're encouraged to translate Notepad++ into your native language if there's not already a translation present in the Binary Translations page.
