Quick Way to Turn Any Browser Into a Notepad

Do you wish to make a quick edit on your browser without opening or using your native Windows in-built notepad.

All you need to do is:

  1. Type the following code into the browser's URL bar:

data:text/html, <html contenteditable>
   
     2. Hit Enter, and

    3. Start typing directly in your browser window.

How Does It Work?

The reason this works is that it uses the Data URI scheme to make a simple HTML page with the element, "contenteditable."

If you decide you want to save it, you can do so in your browser and it will save as an HTML file.


For easy access, of course, you don't have to remember the little line of code, just bookmark the page.


Editing your work just got easier. Tried it already?
