Hi Avery Brandonn,

Normal Notepad in Windows doesn't support multiple tabs. It opens each document in different windows.
 
There are a lot of third party tools which supports multiple tabs.
 
And the best one to use among them is Notepad++. It is a widely used text as well as code editor.
 
It has a lot of features than normal notepad. It is a free software and you can download it from here.
 
It supports multiple tabs. See the below image.
 
 
Hope it helps.

If you are referring to Microsoft Notepad, it is not a tab-delimited program and it can only open a single file at a time. Tab-delimited means separated by tabs. If you want to open multiple files using Microsoft Notepad, you also need to open multiple instances of the program to open every file.

If you want to use a program similar to Microsoft Notepad but can open multiple files in an instance, you can use Notepad++. Notepad++ is an alternative text editor program to Microsoft Notepad. Unlike Microsoft Notepad, with Notepad++, you can open multiple text files at the same time separated by tabs. Every file is opened in a separate tab. No need to open multiple instances of Notepad++.

If you want to try Notepad++, go to Notepad++ Home and download the latest version. Aside from being a plain text editor, it can also be used on building source codes because it understands multiple programming languages such as C, C#, C++, Java, JavaScript, HTML, Visual Basic, Fortran, ASP, Assembly, AutoIt, and others. You can configure it to use a specific programming language.
