Factory made computers usually come with only a single partition on them no matter how huge your hard drive is, which would range from anywhere between 250GB to 500GB these days.

Like it is not always wise to put all your eggs in one basket, it is also not safe or advisable to keep all your files on a single partition, this may create quite a hindrance when you want to reinstall your operating system or install a newer one, placing files in separate partitions is really the best thing to do.

However creating partitions and managing them is not that easy, this is where EASEUS Partition Master Professional will come in handy.

Now type few lines and close the Notepad file. Open the notepad file and you will see date time information added to each line of text in your Notepad file. You can also add this information manually, just hit F5 key where you want to insert date-time information.

2. Notepad as HTML Stripper Ideally text on webpages is formatted for specific font type, color, size along with other CSS design elements and images. You can rip off text only from any webpage using notepad. Just select and copy text from any webpage and paste in a notepad file which can be saved (without any formatting baggage) for future use.

3. Notepad as Printing cost saver Notepad can come handy when you are printing text laden pages in large quantity.

6. Notepad as Text Replacer You can use notepad to replace word(s) in essay of text. For example, you want to replace Microsoft’ with Yahoo’ in specific text file. Copy the text into notepad file and use Ctrl + H (or Edit > Replace), enter Microsoft in first text field and Yahoo is second text field and click the replace button.

7. Notepad as Window Explorer Skipper Sometimes specific files cannot be deleted. You can try notepad to skip and bypass Windows Explorer to delete such files. Open Notepad, GOTO File > Open. Select all files’ in file type dropdown menu. Now browse to folder and right click on file you want remove and click the delete option. Sometimes, this might come handy!

8. Notepad as Fun app Notepad isn’t that simple and has its share of flaws. Open Notepad and type this app can break and then save the file. Open the file and see for yourself notepad just broke something!
