As we know, Notepad is a plain text editor, that would Normally save your texts in “.txt” extension.
To launch this application, hit your Windows Start button >> All Programs > Accessories, there you’ll find it.
There are many other text files your Notepad can open for your use in editing,
a few DOC files (Microsoft Documents) and many others.
But then, if you EDIT the file and want to “Save As New“, you’re likely to have come across a problem, it keeps saving with default format.
I needed it to be in its default extension, so it could work on the webpage I wanna use it for.
After saving as *txt, I tried renaming the file extension, removed only the *txt in the file name, yet, the typical file type REMAINED a *txt file.
If you experience such difficulties,
Here’s how you can Save a File in its Default Extension, or save to Any New Extension you want using NOTEPAD
> Click the Save As New
> Move down to “Save as File Type” just below File Name, Click “All Files“
and Hit Save
It will Save it by the File extension you gave it.
