use note pad.

Just save your file with the "html" extension

Thanks you all for the suggestions. I'll try everything that you suggested and see which is the best for me.

Hey Gavin, here is a link to note pad++, "https://notepad-plus-plus.org/"

As Lee said, download this text editor, and when you start a new file save it with a html extension.

Example: "mypage.html"

From there you can open the file in a browser like chrome to see it in action.

Good luck

You could use Notepad(++), or even better, Use Brackets! A free open-source program mainly used for web development!

I'd give my vote to atom. It's open source with a dedicated community and brought to you by the guys who developed GitHub. It's also seeming to become the industry standard over Sublime Text. Happy coding!

my vote goes to brackets and atom ...best in the word


For me sublime is the best if you can and want to afford the price of the app, you can try the others that the users suggest and keep the one that fits with your own style of programming.
