This question already has an answer here:
Most documents I'm opening in notepad.exe under windows 7 lately, there are no linebreaks... everything just runs together. The same documents in any other program, even previewed directly in Explorer, will show the linebreaks correctly. this is happening with many .info files, .css, .js.. but not all of them.
I am guessing it's some kind of character encoding unix line endings something or other, but wondering if there's anything I can do or if anyone else has experienced similar and if I can make notepad work correctly. I prefer it to notepad++/other text editors for certain uses.
