  1. Re-naming Notepad Documents


    I recently read a 2016 post seeking information on renaming a Windows Notepad text document. The procedure is simple and straight forward. Locate the file in your 'documents' folder (or wherever you've saved it.)

    Right-click on the document (do not open it) then scroll down the options drop-down list, near the bottom is the 'rename' option. Click it, enter new name and press 'enter'. Voila!

    :)

    Your screenshot of Task Manager and the notepad.exe properties shows the same size and creation date as in @dalchina's earlier screenshot. So it looks like it is the real notepad that's running.

    But - it isn't running the way it should. In your Task Manager there should be a > to the left of notepad, and clicking on it should open up a list of the Notepad instances that are running, along with the name of the document that's open (or 'Untitled - Notepad' if none).

    Yours doesn't show that (compare it with dalchina's screenshot). Notepad is running - yes, but not the way it's supposed to. It appears to be in the list of background processes, not in the list of Apps where it should be. Could something be trying to run it as a service? Perhaps some malware set this up, but failed to replace the genuine notepad.exe with its counterfeit one?

    As a first step I'd look at the Startup tab in Task Manager for clues.

    how can edit the format of documents in notepad

    Hi Ramon,

    We understand that you'd like to edit the format of documents using Notepad application.

    If you're trying to open an Office document like Word or Excel using Notepad, be informed that since the app only detect pure text, it will lose all the format and objects originally came with the document.

    You can follow these steps to open a document in Notepad:

    1. Right-click the document file.

    2. Select Open With, and select Notepad. If not its not on the list, click
    Choose another app.

    3. Select Notepad, and click OK.

    Kindly post back if you have further concerns.
