    notepad view status (XP PRO SP1)

    Curious why some users' Notepad.exe have a grayed out Status Bar menu under View while others have the ability to use that feature. Client requested help with this and I checked my own installation and I have the same grayed out menu item. I am local admin on my box so I don't have restrictions.

    To view the status bar in notepad, word wrap must be turned off.

    Normally, the Status Bar item is only enabled if Word Wrap (in the Format menu) is OFF (not checked). For a tweak to make it available when Word Wrap is ON, see Registry Edits for Windows XP - item 94, right hand side ("Enable Notepad Status Bar with Word Wrap").
