I'm trying to view the info of my crypto-currency wallet, but when I tried to open up the .bat file with the default text editor the OS stopped responding. Is there a text editor or program to open, view, and edit .bat files?

you might want to try looking at the file from a terminal ...

  1. open a terminal window
  2. change directory to where the file is (not req'd but my way)
  3. if the file is small ... cat {the file name}
  4. if the file is large ... more {the file name}

If your file is an ordinary Windows .bat file, you can rename *.bat file to *.text and open it by any text editor.

  • You don't even need to rename it.

install Leafpad from the appcenter
