I'm looking for a Windows text editor featuring URL encode for all the non-ASCII characters

For example, when encoding the following string:


the result should be this:


(this is the URL the Chrome gives you when you copy the page location in te clipboard)

I'm using Notepad2 but it doesn't encode the non-ASCII characters.

Notepad++ has a plugin available called MIME Tools which has URL encode and decode functions. It even has a "Full URL Encode" which encodes even the ASCII characters.


CudaText editor can do it with plugin "Encode".

  • menu Plugins/ AddonManager/ Install, select plugin "Encode"
  • select entire URL with unicode chars
  • call plugin: Plugins/ Encode/ URL Encode

It replaces URL to encoded.
