I always preferred this program to the "real" Wordpad. Alas, it refuses to install on my 64-bit Windows 7 system. When I try to run Setup, it immediately informs me it is not compatible with my system.

I have used this app since its first offering...back in the 90s or before. It has worked great for doing small editing and writing projects and is a terrific on the fly notebook utility.

Simple text editor with spell checker and a good wordpad or notepad substitute with class. With use it becomes versatile.
