You're alone in a room with the Windows 10 out-of-the-box apps. What do you do?

Don't how many plug-ins you load, but my Notepad++ start is instantaneous.

I don't advocate to make Notepad a bloated application, but it lacks features you expect from a text editor today. And the average computer is enough powerful to not blink if they're added.

For example, it can't become stuck if you open a large file. It needs better search (and maybe replace) features. Some syntax highlighting would be welcome.
