Windows 11 could bring a divisive new feature to Notepad.

Windows 11 could jazz up Notepad by adding tabs into the mix, at least if a leak from a test version of the app is anything to go by – although not everyone is happy about this idea (we’ll come back to that point).

Windows Central spotted a tweet from a Microsoft staff member which mentioned tabs coming to Notepad and displayed a screenshot of the preview version of the application showing tabs in action.

That screen grab came with a clear warning to not discuss the new features or take screenshots – so as you might imagine, when Twitter picked up on the leak, the tweet was swiftly deleted.

It’s no great surprise to see the presence of tabs further expanded in Windows 11, considering that they recently came to File Explorer. For those who could use a quick refresher on exactly what tabs are and how they work, the tabs in File Explorer, or indeed Notepad, are just the same as the ones in your web browser.

They allow you to open multiple web pages in the same browser window, and similarly in File Explorer, enable the opening of many folders in the same window. With Notepad, you’ll be able to open multiple documents in one instance of the app.

While we observed above that it’s no real surprise to see tabs arrive in another place within Windows 11, given Microsoft’s clear ambition to make more use of them outside the browser, it is admittedly somewhat surprising that they’ve come to Notepad. It’s not exactly the most high-powered app, after all, and in fact its core philosophy is all about keeping things very simple when it comes to jotting and editing text.

However, Notepad has received quite a bit of attention in Windows 11, as users of the app will doubtless appreciate. That includes a more modern appearance (rounded corners), font changes, and a dark mode, so in that respect, more revamping isn’t such a shock.

As to whether Notepad really needs tabs, that depends on who you’re talking to. Some users are glad to see the feature arrive – it’s in other similar text editors, they argue, and should’ve been in Notepad already – while others, well, they’re not so keen. The latter camp is afraid of Microsoft bloating up the application with this change – and perhaps more in the pipeline, given the way things have been going? What those folks fear is Notepad will eventually no longer be a simple quick-to-fire up app, taking longer to load for example.

We must remember that this change is still only in testing, though. Cynical types could even argue this leak was spilled to gauge the reaction to the change, but whatever the case, just because a feature is undergoing internal testing doesn’t mean it’ll see the light of day in the release version of the app. However, it’s seemingly a possibility for the future, for sure.

We reached out to Rich and his team at Computer Geek in July 2021. We were in desperate need of help because our former website design agency left us hanging with major website issues that needed immediate attention. Rich and his team were extremely helpful and quick to come to our rescue! They have helped us with numerous projects that have helped our SEO. Our sales have increased 30% since coming to Computer Geek. We've been working with them for about nine months now and are very pleased with their response time and helpful manner. Rich has proven himself to be trustworthy and dependable. We feel valued as a customer and look forward to continuing a relationship with Computer Geek.

I would certainly like to recommend that anyone pursing maintenance for a website to contact The Computer Geek. I have been using another company to do some maintenance on my site with moderate success. There were issues that were evidently beyond what could be handled by them. However, the professionals at The Computer Geek had them addressed and rectified in no time at all. The Computer Geek approached all of my requests focusing on my goals and the needed performance. Then, once versed, presented me with a very reasonable price. Once the projects were in motion, I found that the tasks were achieved before I expected, with professional results. Also, in one instance where The Computer Geeks brought an issue to my attention that I would have likely overlooked. This was accompanied by a recommendation on how to solve the issue. Overall The Computer Geeks exceeded my expectations!
