I want to find a simple editor which can let me locate a file quickly by typing the filename, just like the Ctrl+Shift+R in eclipse.

I tried a lot just now, but found only a few of them can do this, but they are not free. Is there any editors are free and can run in windows?

Following can't:

  1. notepad++
  2. notepad2
  3. scite
  4. ConText
  5. jEdit

Following can, but not free:

  1. sublime

Vim is always the answer when talking about text editors. link

And if you don't like Vim, try harder, then try cream :-) – RedGrittyBrick Aug 18 '11 at 11:15
I hope there is an editor other than vim – Freewind Aug 18 '11 at 11:15
Can you please explain why? – m0skit0 Aug 18 '11 at 11:16
@RedGrittyBrick, I just tried cream, I found it even harder than vim, and I didn't find the locate file function – Freewind Aug 18 '11 at 11:32
@m0skit0, because I have tried vim, and found I can't manage it. There are too many things to learn, but I just need something easier, like notepad++. – Freewind Aug 18 '11 at 11:35
