Windows 10: View/source in Win 10 + Notepad + Favourites

    View/source in Win 10 + Notepad + Favourites

    Couple of questions here, not too tech savvy so bear with me.

    1) How can I view the source code on a web page in Win 10? In Win 7 it was clear and self explanatory but now there's nothing to show how anywhere that I can find. (It's to see if certain links are dofollow or nofollow).

    I tried a search using term how to view source code in Windows 10 and the top result indicated a page with that info but when I clicked on it the page had absolutely nothing about viewing source code in Win 10! Could someone please give me step by step instructions as to how this is done in Win 10 or supply a link to a page that actually does have info on it.

    2) Notepad. Again with Win 7 it was clear and simple. The rectangular box would come up and you simply typed in your text and saved it. Now in Win 10 when I click on Notepad I get a big square box which writes the text in one big long line which extends past the right side of the box. How do I get it back the way it was?

    3) Can't find how to add favourites in Win 10. Did it once using trial and error but can't remember the path now. Shouldn't have to use "trial and error" anyway, it should be clearly indicated but it isn't, too much trouble for them I suppose. Could someone tell me how please.

    All advice/info on these three questions gratefully appreciated.

    hello, I think note pad always worked like that ,but I could be wrong ,,I you type in a sentence ,just hit enter and it will take you to the next line underneath ,and also go to format in the top bar of notepad and turn on word wrap

    assuming you are using Edge browser .if so just right click on the page you have opened and source will be in the list .win10 still has IE browser if you want to use it ,they just hide it , its now in Windows Accessories folder in Start /all apps .,just right click the icon ,choose more ,and pin it to taskbar if you wish

    favorites can be added by click on the yellow star at the end of the address bar .. you will also see an option to add favorites bar ,to the top of the browser ..
    also you can click the 3 dots next to the x top right of the browser to open setting and more ,in settings you can set home pages if you like.

    hope this is of some help ,kind of doing this at work so I'm hurrying the response ,,

    You can toggle word wrap on and off, and change the font and its size from Format menu in Notepad:
