In some cases it is useful to have a good text editor at hand, to quickly buffer a text (e.g. copied from a website) without any formatting (font, bold, underline, color, etc.).
Notepad++ is the best text editor I know. It is fast and requires very little resources. Notepad ++ is also free, its use is governed by the GPL License.
