Considering that most text editors are eather too heavy or look too old, the author came up with Notepads, designed to be a modern-looking UWP app.
Notepads features : - Fluent design with built-in Tab system. - Blazingly fast, feels like win32 notepad.exe but looks better. - Launch from command line or PowerShell by typing: "notepads" or "notepads %path-to-your-file%". - Multi-line handwriting support. - Built-in Markdown file live preview. - Built-in diff viewer (Preview your changes).
Notepads is still under developpment and is currently accessible through a beta version.
WolfIcefang Notepads makes a real attempt to integrate with Windows 10 and work as a modern Notepad app. It installs from the Microsoft Store, it loads almost instantly, and it implements Fluent Design elements. This app made such a good first impression that I've already uninstalled Microsoft's built in Notepad app. It may not be the "best text editor", but it is the best alternative for Windows 10's Notepad.
