What is a txt file and how do I open a txt file?

TXT files contain only electronic text. They are recognized by any text editing or word processing program. TXT files are created by Notepad for Windows and by TextEdit for Mac OS X. The content of these .txt files is unformatted ASCII text that can be saved as .txt documents in small file sizes. Almost all smartphones are bundled with applications that offer compatibility support for accessing the content of these TXT files, while the Amazon Kindle device can also be used to open and view the content which has been stored in a TXT document. Commonly used Microsoft Windows text editing applications like Microsoft Notepad can also be used to create TXT files, and this program can even be used to save these unformatted text documents in HTML and JS formats among others.
