.txt file extension
- Plain text file.
An plain text file can be opened, viewed and edited using any standard text editor (such as notepad on Windows). The contents of a text file can be viewed using a word processor, but should not be saved using a word-processor because a word processor will tend to add additional formatting and layout information so any saved file is unlikely to still be a text file.
Can you add to this? Do you know of any applications not already listed which will work with .txt files, view .txt files or open .txt files? Are you able to contribute any additional reference information or file format information about .txt files or have you spotted any errors or omissions? If so please let us know by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org - Thank you.
