Software Product Description

ProgramEdit is a free source code editor for Microsoft Windows, which you can also use to edit any ASCII text. The simple but powerful application features several unique capabilities in addition to the important functions many professional editors contain.


  • numerous editing and navigation functions
  • syntax highlighting
  • tabbed file selection
  • text highlighting
  • find and replace
  • regular expressions
  • sessions
  • tidy
  • custom shortcuts
  • bookmarks
  • multiple undo/redo
  • hyperlinks

You can open a file via the File/Open menu or by simply dragging and dropping it onto the programs Edit window. You can drag and drop folders, files or their shortcuts. You may open multiple files simultaneously, which you access via their respective tabs. You can even open hundreds of files so long as your computers memory can handle their sizes.

When you have many files open at the same time, you may not see all their tabs. However, you can view a list of all file names when you click the green down arrow to the right of the tab bar.

If you would like to open a link file itself instead of its target file or folder, then you need to press and hold the Alt key as you drag and drop the shortcut. Please note that you cannot open the link file via the File/Open menu.

The wordwrap function allows you to break up long lines into shorter ones that you can see on the Edit window. The Search menu gives you several functions. For example, the Highlight option lets the program highlight all occurrences of a word or group of words and show the number of occurrences on the lower part of the program window. Another unique function of the program is bracket matching, which supports different types of brackets.

You can view or edit the properties of an open file using Windows Explorer, which you may access from either the File or context menu.

ProgramEdit allows you to create sessions for saving and restoring program settings for various projects like web page HTML, program source code, data tables, e-mail text or notes among others. The program is compatible with 17 different software languages.

System Requirements:

  • Windows XP or later operating system
  • Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 or above
