    Text Editor on Webpage

    I'm creating a website that requires an advanced text editor, similar to the word processor in Google docs. I'm planning on creating the editor from scratch, but I'm not sure what language to use. I was thinking of using a Java applet, but I'm open to other suggestions. Some of the features that are required are highlighting and drawing (such as Microsoft Paint). Any suggestions would be helpful.

    built in text editor windows 10

    Hi Gary

    Windows has two built in Text editors, Notepad and Wordpad

    Notepad is very basic and Wordpad has more features and is like a cut down version of Word and has a blue background

    Click your Start Button, then just type notepad or wordpad

    You can open either form the resulting list, or to make them more accessible, right click the application in that resulting list and choose Pin to Start

    That will put a new tile on the Start Menu for that application

  4. Is WordPad a text editor?

    Saving a TXT file with WordPad editor

    Since saving the file in text format involves the loss of some information, Wordpad must warn you explicitly. If you do not wish to be warned then you should use a text editor, e.g. notepad.exe.
