    I can't find anywhere this function..if I have a duplicate, I want to delete it for all.
    Ex:
    Original file
    Code:
    A
    B
    B
    C
    So, B and B are duplicates. I want to delete BOTH lines, to get a result like:
    Code:
    A
    C

    BigTroll, get Notepad++ its free, and use its find and replace feature to delete duplicate lines.

    Think you should heed Brad100 advice. Think this would be the most feasible method.

    Thanks, but I can't find this option. I don't want to delete duplicate lines only to keep only 1 original, I want to delete both. Like on my example, if I have 4 lines:
    A
    B
    B
    C

    After this operation, I need to keep only 2 lines:
    A
    C
