This is a question many have asked of MS.  It looks like there is a solution but this requires a registry amendment.  Have a look at the link below for an explanation.

Dear all,


I love Notepad and use it much for my documentation.

I see now that when I use the save option in Notepad, it goes as default to save it as ansi code and each time I have to change it manually to Utf-8 – as it was all the time before.

My qeustion:

Is there any way to change it permanently as it was before and I WILL NOT HAVE EACH TIME TO CHANGE THE ENCODING TO uTF-8.

I have another pc with Windows 7 and there, all is right.

Does this problem is only in my machine or it happens to work so with all windows10 anniversary users?


Please help.
