Notepad++, the popular text and source code editor has made its way to the Microsoft Store. As the popular Notepad replacement is currently distributed as free software, developer Jake Vis has cloned the original repository and used Microsoft’s Desktop app converter to publish it on the Microsoft Store.
The app being available on the Microsoft Store means that it can be used on Windows S, and soon on Windows 10 in “S Mode.” The regular version of Notepad++ receives frequent updates, and it remains to be seen if this unofficial release keeps up with the non-Store version. In the meantime, you can check the code and changes required for publishing on GitHub.
Despite a design that looks pretty bland compared to Fluent Design apps, Notepad++ has an entirely customizable interface and plenty of features for power users, including tab support. You can get the Microsoft Store version from the download link below.
