What are Text Files?

Simply put, Text Files contain text and are the most common type of file. Text Files can contain plain text as well as rich text formats. Any computer user can create a plain text file using a simple program like Notepad.

Generally, it is a computer file that is in human-readable form and uses data in sequence of lines stored as electronic text. Text files are also used by software developers to store essential program data such as log information related to software events. Because of their simple encoding, text files are also utilized as a hassle-free method for data storage.
