  • Hello 

    I saw here on some Answers that- Edit- isn´t supported by windows 10 64 bit, and that it just has work to Windows 7-so will you tell me which Name can be used for Edit on the windows 10?


    Thanks

  • Hi Marton11.

    There is no such thing in Windows 10 as the old edit command, that was used to start and run the MS-DOS Editor program.
    In Windows 10, you use the Notepad program to edit plain text files.

    Bye.

  • Hello Luigi,

    Was it removed from teh 32 bit version of Windows 10 ?  I thought it still existed in 32-bit versions if you installed the NTVDM.

    It certain isn't in the 64-bit versions of Windows since Edit.com is a 16-bit program and 16-bit programs do not run in 64-bit Windows.

    It could be still available (I don't use a 32 bit version of Windows since 2008), but I've read it could lead to some issues: that would be the only way to enable the old MS-DOS Editor, since (as you've correctly stated) 16 bit programs cannot be executed on 64 bit Windows versions.

    Bye.
