    Microsoft will now update Notepad via Microsoft Store in Windows 10


    Notepad has been a well-loved text editor in Windows for over 30 years. Over the last few releases, we’ve been making a number of small improvements to Notepad based on your feedback (including expanded line ending support, wrap around search, and indicating when there’s unsaved content.) Starting with Windows 10 build 18963, we’re making a change so that future Notepad updates will be automatically available via the store. This will allow us the flexibility to respond to issues and feedback outside the bounds of Windows releases. As always, if you have any feedback for Notepad, we welcome it in the Feedback Hub under Apps > Notepad.

    The Notepad app via the Microsoft Store will arrive to the public with the Windows 10 20H1 update sometime around April 2020.

    If ain't broken, don't fix it.

    Just sayin'.

    Good read, really interesting. I love the quote at the top of the article
    “Sometimes, hacking is just someone spending more time on something than anyone else might reasonably expect.”
    Thanks for sharing this.
