Microsoft has recently released Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 18963 (20H1).

Microsoft to move Notepad to the Store

Besides the many improvements that the tech company is implementing with their new Fast Ring build, a change to Notepad stood out.

More specifically, Microsoft is moving the Windows 10 Notepad app to the Microsoft Store. This move aims to bring faster and more frequent updates to the app.

In the last 30 years, the text editor hasn’t seen many massive improvements, but just some small ones like expanded line ending supportwrap around search, and indicating when there’s unsaved content.

Until now, Notepad updates were linked to Windows updates, which made it harder to diagnose bugs and glitches.

With the app landing in the Microsoft Store, developers will be able to push updates and fixes whenever they are needed, and no longer bound to a new build of the OS.

Keep in mind that this is tested in the latest Fast Ring build, and we’ll have to wait for the next big update to see the change.
