Notepad++ is a familiar text and source code editor for Windows. This can be an alternative to create VCF file too. How? Let’s see.
How to create VCF file using Notepad++
You need to manually create VCF file in Notepad++ using correct syntax. The file must start with following syntax:
BEGIN:VCARD and end with:
END:VCARD. It also must contain Version property to specify vCard version. You can add contact details by adding properties with their name, like
ADR for address,
N for name,
FN for formatted name string,
TEL for phone number,
BDAY for birthdate,
URL for website, and so on.
After adding details, save the created file as VCF file. It doesn’t show .VCF extension while saving the file, so you have to manually add .VCF file extension with filename while exporting created text file.
Overall, Notepad++ can be a nice alternative for a vCard creator for users who like coding. It can also be used as a YAML Editor, GPX Editor, Spell Check Software, etc.
Notepad is the default text editor for Windows. Like Notepad++, this can also be used to create VCF file. The whole procedure to create VCF files is same. You need to manually write text with correct syntax. The file starts with
BEGIN:VCARD and terminates with
END:VCARD. The file must contain version to mention vCard version and other properties which specify contact details. While saving the file, simply add .VCF extension to the filename and the VCF file will be created.
