Time for action - setting up a new file in Notepad++
Now we know why we need to set up a new file properly, so let's do it.
- Open Notepad++ by going to your Start menu | All Programs | Notepad++ | Notepad++.
- We already have a blank document to start with, so we just need to set the mark-up language. Click on the Language menu at the top of the screen, scroll down to P, and select Python from the pop-up menu.
Now the document is set for Python and Notepad++ will mark-up our code for us.
So let's start coding.
