Notepad++ Toggle Line Wrap

In this guide I will show you how to toggle line wrap inside of the Notepad++ application. This can be extremely helpful when we are working with really long lines of text. For example, if you are trying to read the text you might turn word wrap on so all of the text is easily in view. If you are not trying to read the text, let’s say coding, then you can turn the word wrap off, and that single line of text will stay on a single line, requiring us to use the scroll bar at the bottom of the page if we really want to read it.

  1. First we want to make sure that we have text that is very long entered into Notepad++. In this example I will use the Lorem Ipsum text.

  2. In the Notepad++ Menu select “View” > “Word Wrap”

  3. We can now see that the long text has been Word Wrapped making it much easier to read.
