Miscellaneous Tweaks - Configure Notepad to use Word Wrap

This setting controls whether text is wrapped onto the next line when the screen in full in Notepad. Although it can be configured by using the Edit menu in Notepad, this tweak allows you to change the word-wrap feature through the registry.

To do this follow the next steps:

  1. Open the Registry Editor click on the Start button on your taskbar, then click on Run and type "regedit" and click on OK to start the regedit utility.
  2. Expand HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Notepad (see picture 1).
