I gave up using Notepad ages ago.
Did you mean to post here in the MD forum, or did youi really want an answer? Please explain more. NotePad, when I used it, had some bad habits, including adding a “.txt” extension whether you needed it or not.
and what do you use now to replace it?
Well, the only thing that changed these days was to disable the f1, f2, f3 keys through the BIOS. But I understand, this has nothing to do with me not being able to save a notepad file.
I just want to save it to my PC
Windows text editors conventionally use Control-S to save a file. The Enter key just puts line-ending characters into your document, it's not meant to save it as a file.
If you're using Notepad to create a new file then Control-S will prompt you to provide the name of the file and the folder to put it in. If you don't pay attention to the folder name then it's possible that you won't remember where Notepad saved the file and you might imagine that it did nothing.
Of course, my friend, when you're typing, if you press enter, you just go down to the next line.
I mean that once the save as option is selected, there you choose the file name and hit enter and it is not saved. The same if I click on the word save.
