Notepad Hack

Since I do not need the UTF-8 editing from notepad++ that seriously, I switched to Notepad coming with windows. While one thing I noticed right away is “Status Bar” in notepad is disabled if enabling Word wrapping…! Why you want to do that, Microsoft!!! I would like to know the statistic, like line and column number.

Luckily, there is simply enough registry hack to get around it. Basically you need to enable the work wrap and close notepad. Then just open regedit and navigate to “HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Notepad” and modify StatusBar value from 0 to 1.
