After years of leaving its Notepad app on its own, Microsoft is giving the app a new lease on life. Some of the new features coming to Notepad include the ability to hold down the control key to zoom into text or use your mouse wheel to do that as well as wrap around find and replace. The app will also support extended line endings for both Unix/Linux and Macintosh. Its status bar will now be enabled by default in Notepad. You will also see display line and column numbers when word-wrap is enabled. Notepad is also getting Ctrl + Backspace support so you can delete a previous word in Notepad. You can even now look for words on Bing by right clicking on the word you want to look up. Performance improvements are also coming to large files. This update is coming later this year in an update codenamed Redstone 5.
