In this way, the application can be a great tool to highlight texts and add comments on the most important information about your reading.

In that sense, the Notepads app is highly rated in the Microsoft Store as an open-source, modern, minimalist-designed text editor. It already comes with an integrated tab system and works in a light way inspired by the old Notepad.exe from Microsoft.
