"There is a standalone .exe available for Microsoft Windows, intended for USB flash drives."

SciTE shares some features with other editors based on the Scintilla editing component such as Geany and Notepad++.

SciTE is highly configurable.

Although there is no graphical preferences window, settings can be altered by editing plain text configuration files.

It is possible to have different settings for each language and project, as well as global or per user options.

There are menu options in the standard install to open these files in the editor.

These allow a high level of customization over things like shortcut keys, tabbing, code folding, fonts, and syntax highlighting.

In addition, the Lua programming language is embedded in SciTE, allowing the user further customization.
