XML Notepad is a Windows program that provides a simple intuitive User Interface for browsing and editing XML documents. There are four ways to install it:

  1. ClickOnce® installer - this is the most convenient, install it directly from the web browser.
  2. Standalone downloadable installer if you need something that works offline. Just download the zip file, copy it to the machine you want to install it on, unzip the file on that machine and run XmlNotepadSetup.msi.
  3. Windows MSIX installer if you need a trusted Windows installer.
  4. You can also use WinGet as follows: winget install XmlNotepad
