The popular Notepad text editor is going to have a major revolution on Windows 11. Microsoft is already preparing a major update, which will bring with it the inevitably awaited dark mode.

This is a strong position taken by Microsoft, which has not touched Notepad for a long time. The idea here is to align the application with the graphic language of the new operating system. Currently, it can only be accessed by Insiders in the development channel, before it is rolled out globally.
Welcome to the dark mode
Concretely, what should we expect in terms of changes? The first major addition is nothing but a dark mode. This news will make you happy Hobby from dark mode, allowing you to rest your eyes when using the computer in a dark environment.
Added to this dark mode is the Mica effect, which plays on the color gradient in a subtle way. This allows you to add a bit of graphic depth and modernity, while maintaining a nice visual consistency. The tool tip, which is slightly more gray, is a good example to illustrate this effect.
In terms of ergonomics, Redmond will also make some adjustments: the option buttons are bigger and better highlighted. A button for accessing parameters is also invited in the upper right corner, while there is also a redesigned search bar (Ctrl + F) in the game.
“Ctrl + Z” is more comprehensive
