Someone sent me a notepad and the contents have a strange font. How can I change it in order to understand it?

nothing happens - Word turned it into Cyrillic. I do not understand this language.

Somebody probably used an old RTF format or a strange font. There is nothing you can do - I have seen this and tried. Call / email the person, explain the problem and ask for a new file. ... Thinkpads_User

The text that u have pasted is found on a pirated website...i cannot paste it but the text is referring to  basic requirements before installing nero.

I cannot paste this website in this forum..i had found this format  been used by crackers and hackers.

Camilleri_David--Normally, there is no such thing as a Notepad file.  You create a document in Notepad and then File|Save As.  That gives you a choice of several file types the most common being .txt.  After what ded9 has said, do you still want to open this file?  If so, what is the file type of this file?

It is probably a text file with ascii-art. You can open such files with a nfo viewer
