    Where's The Registry Location For The Notepad Window Size?


    The window size (horizontally & vertically) for Notepad is stored somewhere in the Registry. Does anyone know where the location of it is?

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Notepad

    It's a dynamic value; why do you want to know?

    Awesome! Thank you Edwin =)


    Reason why is because sometimes I accidentally click and drag an edge of Notepad (and it gets resized). I like having it in a certain size for certain projects' notes that I have a custom layout inside Notepad for. I use that same layout for all the other project notes that I use. So I saved extracted and saved this info in a custom reg file that I have that if I mess up a certain setting, I can re-register that reg file to set things back to the way that I want them. (For example, inside that same reg file, I have File Explorer's size saved in there too. etc.)
