How to enable status bar in Notepad ?

To enable status bar in notepad the wordwrap has to be disabled and vice versa.

If you want both to be enabled everytime you need to go to registry setting and edit following key.

  • Click on Start > Run > type regedit
  • Go to:HKEY_CURRENT_USER > Software > Microsoft > Notepad.
  • Double click the StatusBar and set its value to 1.
  • Confirm with OK.
  • Close the Registry Editor and launch Notepad.
Now the status bar will be grayed out, but it will be selected and you can use both the functionality. If you reboot the machine you may probably need to set it again.
