[Fix] Notepad has status bar option greyed out

The issue of windows notepad not showing it's status bar had been bugging me for ages.

The status bar option under 'View' is greyed out. The status bar is very useful as it gives line numbers which I find useful when debugging html code.

I finally found a fix for it. It is quite simply fixed by turning off word wrapping under 'Format'.

Yes thats it. Just turn off word wrap.

As a bonus you can use [ctrl+G] or [Edit -> Goto] to quickly go to a specific line number, when word wrap is switched off.

Often, such problems arise because of directory failures. The best way to solve this problem is to reinstall. The easiest way to download the software is here https://yumdownload.com/notepad , as on the official website you will be offered to download the full package of standard programs.
