How can I hide left lines counting thing in Notepad++?

I can't find it in menu and can't google it. I don't like it.

This option controls the visibility of line numbers: (Settings -> Preferences)

Ok. But why it is in the "editing" tab? I searched in General, Misc and View menu. –  Qiao Jun 4 '12 at 12:27
@Qiao: Sorry, I don't know why it was put there. –  Oliver Salzburg Jun 4 '12 at 12:28
settings ⇒ preferences ⇒ editing –  Iain Jun 1 at 12:21

There is also an option to hide/display the status bar. The line counting on this element may be what is bothering you if you've already figured out how to hide the line-number column.

nope, I just confused words "counting" and "numbers" –  Qiao Jun 4 '12 at 12:35
