Editors’ Review

TextPad is an affordable shareware text editor for Windows that is suitable for coding or as a feature-packed replacement for Notepad. It’s neither the most powerful nor most expensive shareware text tool, though many users will find it more than meets their needs at a fraction of the cost of similar tools.


Advanced editing: TextPad can shift and block indent text, change case, transpose characters, words, and lines, check spelling in multiple languages, run macros, and perform other editing duties.

Warm Start: Warm Start lets you pick up right where you left off.

Customizable: Ten optional toolbars, vertical and horizontal scroll bars, the document selector sidebar, and the ability to configure and access external tools are just a few of TextPad’s many options. An extensive Preferences menu enables deep customization.


Neither free nor pro: While TextPad is affordable and maybe even a bargain, it faces competition from similar freeware that meets the needs of most users who don’t require coding capabilities, on one hand, and pro-level tools that may be more expensive than TextPad yet are still affordable for their performance on the other.

Bottom Line

We like to use an aftermarket text editor in Windows, and TextPad has more features than most users will ever need.
