Windows 11 has a new Notepad app that retains the familiar look of the classic version, but with new visual changes that align with the new modern design language across the desktop with rounded corners, dynamic Mica material that shines through the desktop colors, and supports the dark and light color system modes.
The app also has new menus with the same options as before. On the right, you will see an option to access the settings page, where you can change the font and the most important feature, the theme color. In addition, Notepad now includes a new find and replace interface (Ctrl + F), and now there is support for multi-level undo.
You can watch our hands-on video demonstrating the Notepad design and functionalities at the Pureinfotech YouTube channel.
