MetaPad replaces Notepad’s interface with an easy access toolbar, giving you one-click access to word wrap, font settings, print, search and more. Metapad can link web pages, and even lets you change the transparency of the app so you can see what you’re working on underneath it.

MetaPad is built for Windows 2000/XP and is also free.
