Windows 11, the Notepad adapts to the new design

Even the glorious Notepad gets a makeover with Windows 11: the new version of the application, with an interface revisited in a more modern and current key, is being distributed to all Insiders in the Beta channel. It is safe to assume that the release into the stable channel is therefore not too far away. Among the most immediately recognizable innovations, we find:

  • Fluent style updated icon
  • rounded corners
  • support to a dark theme (with automatic switch according to system settings)
  • the new floating bar for Find and Replace
  • performance optimizations when opening very large files

The new Notepad was announced at the beginning of last December: it was initially released in the Dev Channel. There are no changes since that release, which means they may still be there some known issues that the company had reported, namely:

  • Difficulty accessing the virtual keyboard when switching languages ​​or switching from/to Japanese IME
  • Jitter when using shift-click to select text
  • Instability and unexpected behavior when scrolling the document
