Question: iPhone - can I save/read/edit Windows Notepad files?

I use Windows 10 Notepad .txt files a lot and I keep them on my Windows PC hard drive.


I already know that in Windows I can attach the .txt files to an AOL email, send it to my iPhone, and read the files in AOL on the iPhone.


But I can see no way of saving them on my iPhone and keeping them in a folder there, opening them and editing them. I guess there is nothing like the Windows folder system on iPhone.


Are there ways of doing this, please?


Or if I uploaded then to e.g. OneDrive, I could access them with my iPhone, but again, could I open, read and edit them?

After more reading, I am thinking of installing Documents 6 (Readdle) on the iPhone, together with the Dropbox folder. Readdle say that with Documents 6 I can create and edit .txt files and synchronize them with my Windows Notepad .txt files on Dropbox via the Dropbox folder.


Is this a good solution?

Without wishing to upset anyone - I have to say that I am not getting much help here.


I now have Windows Notepad files and other files on Dropbox, synced with my iPhone SE.


On the iPhone, I can create new .txt files. (and even Word files, it seems). I can also open all the .txt files from my PC, but:


- In some .txt files, I have an Edit icon at bottom left, and can edit.

- In other .txt files, I have no Edit icon and cannot edit, and have wandered around trying to find out how to make the file editable, without success.


Can anyone help me with this, please?
