There is a difference as software programmers/creators know, Notepad is plain text while WordPad is a "lite" version of Word. A text editor usually has very little formatting available while a word processor can manipulate what is seen or printed but has hidden coding that can screw up a program [usually seen when Reveal Codes are active]. Notepad also works with HTML as used for Web pages, got my start with it back over 20 years ago, just doesn't work with the graphics. I used FrontPage for the graphical view until I could no longer use it with Office 2010 64-bit.Hi Rab,
if you just want a simple text saved, use "Wordpad" rather than Notepad. Are you trying to save a script or just a simple text file?. I don't know if there really is much of a difference between the two, Wordpad seems more advanced than Notepad?.
Would suggest that the OP is editing an existing file already present where ever and probably not a generic .txt file, so....what happens is saving the note pad content as all files
