How do I open text files?

For example: I have a few .txt files that I copied from my computer to my phone by USB.

1. There is no Open menu choice anywhere in Samsung Notes, which would be the easiest & fastest route.

2. When I open Samsung Notes>Settings>Import Notes & select Phone, the following page is blank & pressing the 'Internal Storage' button does nothing.

3. When I open the My Files app, navigate to & tap a file I want to open, an 'Open with' box comes up, but Samsung Notes is not listed.

I use Total Commander to view .txt files. It's free, ad-free & a versatile & powerful file manager.

Thanks for the suggestions.
I think both will be overkill for my purposes.
I just need to write short shopping lists w/check boxes & cross-outs & a few short reminder notes that will only need to be accessed once in a while. And the app doesn't need to have any internet access.

I have downloaded Notepad Free by atomczak & have been using it for a few years (on previous phones). Simple & easy to use & according to atomczak, new features are being worked on at the moment. Being able to create checklists being 1 of them.

I'm also going to check out Simplenote by Automattic, Inc.

But since Samsung Notes came pre-installed on my A35, I thought I'd check it out.
It's ok w/some nice features; but not being able to open .txt files is really shortsighted on Samsung's part; in my opinion.
