Boston Python workshop 2/Friday setup/Windows text editor

From OpenHatch wiki

Our recommendation

On Windows, we suggest the Notepad++ text editor. It is actually unrelated to the Windows default program called Notepad.

To install it:

To run it:

  • In Windows Vista or Windows 7, click on the Start menu, type Notepad++ in the Search Field, and hit enter.
  • In Windows XP, click on the Start menu, navigate to All Programs, and then navigate to Notepad++.


Now you have an editor that you can use to open any text file, including Python programs.

If you have different editor for text, check with an instructor before moving on to make sure it will work for the weekend.
