Text Editor Anywhere allows you to edit text anywhere with your favorite text editor. It provides a means of taking advantages of some advanced features (like auto-completing, spell checking and syntax highlighting) that are only available in an external text editor. It may also save you from web browser crashes.


For example, you can use Vim to tweet or reply a post in Chrome with the help of Text Editor Anywhere.

  • Support all kinds of text editors
  • Support all applications
  • Support Unicode
  • You can pass complex parameters to the editor


It’s very easy to use:

Step 1: Press Win + A whenever you need it. You can hold Win key and press “A” repeatedly to choose another file extension or edit the text with a new extension. It works like Alt + Tab.

Step 2: Edit the text in your favorite editor.

Step 3: Save the file and close the editor (or simply switch back using Alt + Tab), your text is already there!
