How to Change a Unicode in Notepad


Unicode is a computer standard that permits you to represent text symbols from virtually all world languages. Unicode includes several methods of character encoding, for example UTF-8 (8-bit Unicode Transformation Format). Notepad is a simple text editor included with Windows XP/Vista that allows you to change Unicode encoding of a file.

  • Log in to a user account in Windows XP/Vista and click "Start" in the left lower corner of the screen.

  • Click "My Computer" to open Windows Explorer and navigate to the text file.

  • Right-click on the file and select "Open With." Then click "Choose default program."

  • Expand the "Other programs" list. Scroll down the list and find "Notepad."

  • Double-click on "Notepad" to open the text file within the editor.

  • Click "File" and "Save As."

  • Choose different encoding (for example, UTF-8) from the drop-down list box. Click "Save" to save the file encoded differently.

  • Click "File" and "Exit" to exit Notepad.
