What is a TEXT file?
A TEXT file contains unformatted ASCII text. It is typically used to compose a document that does not require any special formatting other than basic fonts and font styles. TEXT files are more commonly saved as .TXT files.
TEXT files are useful for storing text information that is supported by various text editors and advanced word processors, such as Microsoft Notepad, Apple TextEdit, Microsoft Word, and Corel WordPerfect. The files are commonly used for notes, directions, log files, readme files, and other similar documents that do not need to appear a certain way.
NOTE: Since TEXT files do not support advanced formatting, you should use a word processor, like Microsoft Word to create more advanced documents, such as a poster or newsletter, and save them as .DOCX files.
