Microsoft today announced the release of new updates for Notepad and Media Player to Windows Insiders on Windows 11. The Notepad app is getting a huge upgrade including native ARM support, improved performance and more.

What’s new in the updated Notepad app:

  • Improved performance: In addition to the improved performance on ARM64 devices, you’ll notice additional performance improvements—especially when scrolling very large files or replacing large amount of text—across all devices in version 11.2205 and higher available in the Dev channel.
  • Improved accessibility: Improved support for screen readers, text scaling, access keys, and other assistive technologies are available starting in version 11.2204 and higher in all channels, with additional improvements in version 11.2205 and higher available in the Dev channel.
