How to replace Windows 10 notepad with another application


We are going to show you how to replace the popular notepad application that integrates Windows 10 with another third party tool

Only a few days ago we talked about the widespread use of a tool as simple as the text editor included in Windows for almost 3 decades, the notebook, still has at this time.

And in the times that we can use a good amount of programs that serve as alternatives to the one mentioned by Microsoft, so at the time we already show you several of them so you can use them at any time.

With everything and with this, this is a application due mainly to one of its main advantages, simplicity, it falls somewhat short in terms of functionality for many users, all depending of the type of work we want to carry out. And is that when it comes to using a plain text editor that offers other additional functions to those presented by the aforementioned notepad , we can install other proposals more interesting.

In this way and if we look for a replacement, we can have other functionalities more advanced such as the possibility to search for specific texts , paginate documents, use footers, margins, etc. Although Microsoft added some new features to the notepad in the most recent versions of Windows 10, they still don't meet the needs of many. That is why in these lines we are going to show you how to replace the integrated notepad in Windows with any other application developed by third parties that do text editing tasks .

Replace the Windows 10 notepad with another editor

To carry out the task that we mentioned, first we must access the Start menu of the operating system and type the command " cmd.exe " and, with the right button of the mouse >, click on the cmd.exe access and select " Run as administrator ". To say that we can make sure that we have started well, that is, as administrator , because in the header of the window , it says so.

Well, at this point we will say that users who are going to use a 32-bit version of the new app that will replace the Notepad , they need to run the following command:

" reg add" HKLM \ Software \ Microsoft \ Windows NT \ CurrentVersion \ Image File Execution Options \ notepad.exe "/ v “Debugger” / t REG_SZ / d “\”% ProgramFiles (x86)% \ APP DIRECTORY \ APP.exe \ ”-notepadStyleCmdline -z” / f

At the same time , those who are going to use a 64-bit version of the new tool , will have to execute the following command:

"reg add" HKLM \ Software \ Microsoft \ Windows NT \ CurrentVersion \ Image File Execution Options \ notepad.exe ”/ v“ Debugger ”/ t REG_SZ / d“ \ ”% ProgramFiles% \ APP DIRECTORY \ APP.exe \” -notepadStyleCmdline -z ”/ f”

Therefore, if everything works as it should, at the end of the process we should get a message stating that the operation has been completed successfully. It is worth mentioning that what the described command actually does is change the information in the Registry of Windows to replace the default text editor , the notebook. Of course, it is possible to undo this substitution at any time by executing the following command as we have done before:

" reg delete" HKLM \ Software \ Microsoft \ Windows NT \ CurrentVersion \ Image File Execution Options \ notepad.exe ”/ v“ Debugger ”/ f
