NotePad is the Microsoft Windows text editor. It is often used for viewing system files or when you view the source of a web page.
This How-To Article shows you how to access NotePad, and what the limitations of NotePad are.
1. Click the Start button, point to Programs, point to Accessories, and select "NotePad" from the menu that appears.
2. You will now see the NotePad main screen. NotePad runs as a typical simple-text editor. You can find Save, Open, and Exit functions from the File menu.
NotePad can only handle files that are no more than 64KB (kilobytes) in size. If you need to edit text files that are larger than 64KB, then you can use WordPad, a more advanced text editor which can handle larger files.
