According to Microsoft, “We are very excited to introduce to all of you the redesigned Notepad for Windows 11, which includes a number of changes we think the community will enjoy! First, you will notice a completely updated UI that aligns with the new visual design of Windows 11, including rounded corners, Mica, and more. We know how important Notepad is to so many of your daily workflows, so we designed this modern spin on the classic app to feel fresh, but familiar.”
The company also announced that one of the features of the new Notepad app is support for dark mode, so if you happen to like the dark mode look or if you happen to work in low-light environments and don’t want the typically white background of Notepad to blind you, then this could be a feature to look forward to.
There are also changes and improvements to the find and replace tool, along with support for multi-level undo, something that Microsoft acknowledges has been requested for many times, and more. The changes should be rolling out so if you are a Notepad user, then keep an eye out for this update.
