Text File Duplicates Finder is a simple software that helps to find duplicate lines in a text file. It shows total number of exact duplicates for a text file as well as lets you delete duplicates and save the new file.
Till now, I haven’t come across a software that can find duplicates in text editors or Windows Notepad. But using this freeware, you will be able to automatically find and remove duplicate lines and can save a new file to destination location.
Screenshot below shows its simple interface where you can add a plain text file to find out duplicate lines.
It could be a useful software whenever you have to delete unwanted duplicate lines, but one feature is missing there. It doesn’t automatically highlight the duplicate lines, neither it shows duplicate lines separately, so you need to look out yourself on its interface. I hope developers add this feature.
