A TXT file is a simple text file that contains only plain text characters; binary data cannot be stored in text files. Text files allow storage of simple text documents where rich text formatting features such as bold, italic, underline, etc. are not needed.

Initially, text files could only store characters residing in the ASCII character set; however, over the years, character encoding properties have been added to allow for non-ASCII characters to be represented using formats such as UTF8 and UTF16.

TXT files are supported by all major operating systems, with most platforms including built-in software allowing text files to be opened and edited without any additional software. Text files also form the basis for many other file formats, such as XML, CSV, and more.
