Notepad++ is available in a 64-bit version in addition to a 32-bit version.
What benefits does the 64-bit version of Notepad++ have over the 32-bit version when running in Windows 7? What about in Windows 10?
I imagine one of the benefits is being able to load enormous, multi-gigabyte files. Is that correct? Are there other benefits?
EDIT 1: There seemed to be much interest in the release of a 64-bit version of Notepad++, but it's hard to imagine that so many people are using it to edit files over 4GB in size, even if multiple files are open. That made me wonder "What are all the advantages to the 64-bit version of Notepad++?".
EDIT 2: I don't think this is a duplicate of Other benefits of 64-bit OS apart from memory expansion? because I'm asking about specific benefits for this particular application. What makes this case even more curious is that, it's probably safe to say that a majority people don't need to edit more than 4GB of text at a time, and that the 64-bit version of Notepad++ has a major limitation (fewer plugins).
