You can use Microsoft Windows PowerShell 1.0/ 3.0/ 4.0 which is free to download and is a new command-line shell and scripting designed for automation. It is compatible with Windows XP, Vista and 8.

You can also download Notepad++, a source code editor that supports many programming languages. The new version 6.4.5 is free to download, compatible with Win 98/ XP/ Vista/ 7, and has an additional function to fix regression on recent file history.
