Windows 11 Notepad bugs

Occasional Contributor

I am experiencing multiple issuse with Notepad on Windows 11:


- When editing a text of more than 10 lines that ends with an empty line, it is impossible to click onto the last text line. The cursor will always jump tothe empty line instead.


- If the Notepad window is not very close to the top of the screen, the Edit menu ("Bearbeiten" in German edition) will not drop down but UP! It extends over the top of the screen, so that the first menu items are not visible.


- The menu shortcut keys have not been translated to German. To open e.g. the "Datei" menu (file), all previous Windows versions used the Alt+D key. Now I must press Alt+F, which is very inconsistent.


Windows 11 Pro Build 22000.556, Windows Feature Experience Pack 1000.22000.556.0, all updates installed, 175% screen scaling.


Is this the right place to report bugs? Will this posting reach some developer who will try to fix it? The was no answer to my previous bug report here.

You may open start and search for feedback and open the Feedback Hub app and report these issues. The Feedback Hub app is the best channel to report bugs and problem and also request for new features.

Perhaps try posting the bug here:

I also have another bug:

There is a bug when trying to select some text (using a mouse) in the middle of a sentence, instead, the selection started from the end of the line, rather than only the email address I was trying to select right in the middle of the sentence. I think it was working fine before this, in terms of selection. Workaround is to use the keyboard Shift + the arrow keys to select text.

Another bug I have noticed, is when selecting text and using the keyboard shortcut Ctrl + C, to copy, the text is not copied into the clipboard. It works when I use the mouse to right click and copy.

Would really appreciate a fix for this. I use Notepad on a daily basis for work. Version - Notepad 11.2112.32.0


Thanks for your advice. I have sent a Feedback Hub report, and now installed Notepad++ which is mentioned in that Devblog post. That will replace both Windows Notepad (after 20 years of usage) and UltraEdit 10 (after 10 years) for me.
Thank you for sharing feedback.
In case you are a software developer , you may try Visual Studio Code too.
