     This program is pretty much just a clone of Microsoft's Notepad, but with tabs. I like the way Notepad looks, feels and works, but I like tabs too, so I combined the two. The program will work standalone, or you can go into File Types and associate text documents (eg. TXT, INI) with it and it will happily open each document in a tab as opposed to a new instance of the program. The program will open as many tabs as you please, and supports standard Notepad functions (such as Find + Replace). Most of the code in the program is pretty straight forward, all indented, if you need any help I will reply to comment or you can email me via the email provided in the program. Oh, and the close tab button will slide along the TabStrip fairly seamlessly - it will cover a tab occasionally but it's probably better than using a whole row underneath the strip for one box, like I was just before I changed it. I hope you enjoy the program - leave feedback or vote if you like it :)

Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
