Vim for Windows is a freeware text editor app filed under text editors and made available by Bram Moolenar for Windows.

The review for Vim for Windows has not been completed yet, but it was tested by an editor here on a PC.

Imitation of the UNIX text editor developed for Windows PCs:

Vim stands for Vi IMproved. It used to be Vi IMitation, but there are so many improvements that a name change was appropriate. Vim is developed to be a text editor which includes almost all the commands from the Unix program "Vi" and a lot of new ones.

All commands can be given with the keyboard. This has the advantage that you can keep your fingers on the keyboard and your eyes on the screen.
