Notepad is a plain text editor and doesn't support rich text. But rich text format consists of codes written in plain text, so you could always insert them yourself. It's easier to use an editor that supports text formatting.

✔ Best Answer
1. Copy and paste the content of your notepad document into whatever text editor you have installed on your PC.
If you don't have MS Office or Open Office, use Wordpad.
Then save in whatever format you require, from the choices offered in the
drop-down menu.

Or

2. Right-click your (Notepad) document. 'Open With';
Wordpad, or whatever.

Again, save in whatever format you choose from the list offered.

3. If creating documents from scratch, and Notepad's .txt format is neither required nor
necessary for the purpose, use Wordpad. It's a basic text editor/word processor, but
still feature rich.
It comes with all versions of Windows and does all that most folk need.

You don't, the power of Notepad is that he ignores fonts and other unnecessary formatting. Notepad is intended to store text, end of story. Use WordPad instead, it's the simple version of Word.

Hi there.
