How to Turn on Word Wrap in Notepad

Notepad, a simple built-in text editor, is one of the simplest yet highly useful applications in Windows. Whether you want to paste a bunch of text in a pinch or type it out without formatting hassle, Notepad is the application you need. By default, Notepad doesn’t wrap text. i.e., word wrap is disabled. That means, anything you paste or type, if longer than the notepad window itself, goes out of the window with horizontal scroll bars at the bottom. This makes it difficult to read and see all the text at once.
