On windows 7 (x64), the default option, for saving text files in notepad is ANSI. One can select other encoding from the combo box, however, I'd like this option to be the default.
Idea for saving it in UTF-8 by default, haven't found a different encoding way as default.
Right click -> New -> Text Document
Open it, and do NOT type anything into it.
File -> Save As...and choose UTF-8 under
Saveand overwrite existing file. Close the file.
New Text Document.txtto
Go to "Start -> Run..." and type regedit. Press OK.
Right click in the right window -> New ->
String Valueand rename it to
Double click on
TXTUTF-8.txtinto value data field and press OK.
Test it: Create new .txt document (Right click -> New -> Text Document). Open it and go to
File -> Save As...and see look at the encoding to make sure it defaults to UTF-8.
