Notepad++ is one of the most powerful alternative to Window Notepad, which supports a wide range of programming languages with syntax highlighting and code editing features. The main reason for its superiority over the default Notepad is the plugins available for performing advanced operations. Location Navigate is a plugin for Notepad++ that automatically records cursor positions, allowing you to navigate between recorded cursor positions later on. It supports hotkey combinations to jump to next and previous cursor positions in the list. When you modify the text, it automatically updates cursor location history. It also supports jumping between both currently open and closed files.

To install the plugin, open Plugin Manager from Plugins menu. From Available tab, select Location Navigate and click Install.
