Are you tired of Notepad being the one native Windows app that looks out of place next to others such as Wordpad, Paint, Microsoft Office, and others with the Ribbon UI? Then you will definitely want to have a closer look at this slick Notepad replacement for your favorite Windows system.

As you can see above the Ribbon UI on Notepad 7 is an excellent match for other Microsoft apps with the same setup.

The app comes in a zip file with exe and msi installation files so you can choose the format that works best for you when setting it up. Keep in mind that Notepad 7 does require Microsoft .NET Framework 4 to work though.

Special Note: When you visit the download page make sure to use the “Softpedia Secure Download (US) [ZIP]” link. The external link was broken at the time of our writing.
