(unofficial) NotePad++ is now avaialble in Windows Store.

The official app description:

This is an (unofficial) Open Source fork of the original Open Source Notepad++ (https://notepad-plus-plus.org/) to get notepad++ in the store. All functionality remains the same however there are some features that dont work due to store policy, or are limited (like some file associations, and the run options). This is a published centennial application. All Credit to the original Notepad++ team, all the heavy lifting of creating an awesome app was done by them.

This is currently Notepad++ version 7.5.9 (updated in this update).

Known issues:

1. Default Plugins can not be removed or updated

2. Custom plugins CAN NOT be loaded AT ALL on Windows 10 S (on other versions of windows, it is possible to load them from %appdata% – but ensure your plugin version matches your build version [x86/x64]).

We are working on including a selection of plugins by default for future versions. Current we have included MarkdownViewer++ and Compare plugins by default.

Notepad++ is a free (free as in both “free speech” and “free beer”) source code editor and Notepad replacement that supports several programming languages and natural languages. Running in the MS Windows environment, its use is governed by GPL License.
