    I don't believe Notepad has that capability. Notepad is a very simple editor with few options. Command line options for a program must be explicitly designed in.

    In a Elevated Command Prompt type

    File Name> 0 & notepad 0

    (ie) cdedit /enum > 0 & notepad 0

    That cannot be done in a standard Command Prompt, it would need to be Elevated Command Prompt (As Admin).
    As written, Notepad would open at the Found line.
