Till now I was using Geany IDE , just because of one reason — Its feature of applying shortcut keys to the Code Snippets. Read more this feature of Geany on my previous article here. But now I have move from Geany to Notepad++. As in Notepad++ I have found a very simple way to integrate the same Code Snippet feature Geany to it. Another important thing about Notepad++ is, it is based on MS Windows environment & very Fast interface compared to any other IDEs.

Notepad++ is a free source code editor and Notepad replacement that supports several languages. Running in the MS Windows environment, its use is governed by GPL License.
