I connect to a Windows Machine via SSH into a Powershell Terminal, and regularly need to made quick,small edits in text files on this Windows Computer, and others reachable via UNC syntax.
Currently I use the binary from the vim console version for windows, but it has drawing problems in my scenario: When you scroll lower than the last line in a file longer than the screen, all lines but the last disappear, and you have to force a redraw with ^L.
There is also a portable single-binary compile of nano.exe, but it has flaws, like non-functioning cursor keys. It also is pretty basic, no vi grammar, no syntax highlighting, but those I could live without for small edits.
For larger,more-involved edits on remote files I already use the excellent emacs/evil/tramp/sftp IDE running locally on my Linux.
Old Windows Versions up to 7/32bit included a very basic editor, that I used to use, but everything starting from 7/64bit does not have that editor anymore, so please don't suggest that one.
The editor vile does not even display anything over SSH in Powershell.
