In case you are wondering why I don't just use "word pad" instead of note pad it's because "word pad makes me go through an irritating process to open a file. "Note Pad" opens right away.
I have no problem moving my jpeg files. The only problem with that is that win 7 won't let me arrange files in the order I wish. But that is minor compared to the inability to move my "note pad" files.
I have also tried opening the edit drop down and clicking "save all" and then choosing "save as" in the file drop down. Then I can select the destination. But when I hit "save" I get a message that no file exists.
That is normal, "Select all" only selects all the text in the file you have open, it will not select multiple files.
When you choose "save" the file has no default location as such and a "Save As" box is opened. You then have to navigate to wherever you want to save the file, give it a name, and save it.
You can make a shortcut;
%windir%\notepad.exe path to file
Which will open notepad automatically at that location.
This is why a lot of people use Notepad replacements!
There are lots of these, but this is a very good free one; Notepad++ | 5.8.6
You might not need alll the "bells and whistles" but you don't have to use them. The program is easy to use but still very powerful.
This is what it looks like;
You can also set up your directory and other preferences; ( You can't do that in Notepad)
