Notepad ++. The immediate difference is that it immediately shows you what is happening with your code, e.g. if you are coding CSS, you will see the effect of missing a closing ' } ' with colours that will change. Try it you will like it! It's free and easy to use.

both are text editors, additionally in notepad++ you get highlighted built-in keywords or functions according to the language you use

I really enjoyed completing courses on SoloLearn and from time to time posting in the discussions. In a moment of aberration, I recently posted an answer here to the simple question above: What is the difference between notepad and notepad++? and I have heard people saying about notepad on windows but what is notepad++? As the answers started coming in, some incorrect, such as Notepad++, being referred to as an IDE. Think about it, someone, who has never used Notepad++, would not know what an IDE was! In any case it is not. It is a text and source code editor, with many features. Now my mobile is continually bleeping as new answers pour in - the downside of technology! Can anybody explain the point of all these days of answers, which have added almost nothing to the answers contributed in the first few hours?

Notepad++ is actually more an IDE while Notepad is only a text editor... For that you can write and see much more integrated development in Notepad++

N++ is more advanced and gives you an ability to write code in multiple languages easily. You should try it.
