    CE character encoding in Notepad


    I hate Windows feature that enforces installing localized software - e.g. I live in Poland so if I set my location as "Poland" many apps will be installed with Polish interface, which I don't want to.

    Therefore I've installed my OS in en-US version and left US as my location. Now it's all nice in terms of apps interface, as it's always English. Most programs cause no problems with one exception - Notepad... *Sad

    Whenever I open a txt file with Polish national characters, I see "bushes" instead of them. I tried to open them as UFT-8 encoded, but it hasn't helped. I've changed Notepad default font into CE encoding - no effect.

    I tend to believe the default Notepad encoding is set to westerns somewhere, but I can't figure where to look for the appropriate setting - can anyone advise me on how to change it, so txt files displayed correctly?

    :)

    Hello,



    Thank you for bringing up your query on Microsoft Community.

    We sincerely regret for the inconvenience caused.

    Please be assured that we will do our best to help you.




    • Does it happen only with a single file or all files?
    I would like to inform you that whatever coding the file is saved using notepad, it will be in the same way while opening it, or the last font or setting used in notepad.

    There is no specific setting to change the file or see a particular character in polish.
