    Yes, I could do that, but that's not really a solution. The problem/bug still exists.

    Edit: Just tried it, and the margin is still so minimal that it's not worth changing it for.

    Consolas is default font (and what I am using). I do not yet have the update and Notepad looks fine to me (as in, not pressed up to the edges). Mine looks like the image that you remember. Not helpful, but wanted to say that yours is definitely different.

    Anyone?
    Me too!
    I got Creators Update yesterday.
    Just opened a txt file with Notepad and... boom! For some reason it looked different.
    I Googled it and found your experience.
    Same here.
    It is not terrible but definitely weird.
    By the way... when I restart my computer, the log-in screen no longer shows the Windows Spotlight image.
    The user lock screen still shows it, though.
    I lost that feature and all those nice photos at restart.
    Again, not terrible but I don't like when you update the OS and things don't work as good as they used to.

    The answer is simple, Use Arial Regular.

    I was using Google's "Roboto Mono" before and after CU. Notepad looks the same, with no padding, as before.
    Maybe you can give it a try, from here

    Mine's been same maybe for around 17 years, currently Windows 10 1703.

    It relates to the metrics of the particular Font.
    I use 'Courier New, bold' and get a reasonable gap/margin.

    Poor old MS gets the blame for everything...

    No. The font is not the cause/reason/issue. I've used Lucida Console for years, and it had a nice left margin. I could also use other fonts, and a decent margin was retained. Various fonts do cause varying margin widths, but in the past, none of them left me with zero margin.

    And yes, MS gets the blame for this because I can see no other reason for the change. The CU update was the ONLY thing that changed before the margin disappeared. And for the record, neither has my status bar been the same since CU.

    Just for s&g I'll add my thought: Notepad is not a word processor like WordPad which in reality is a 'lite' version of Word like the older Write in Win3.xx. Notepad doesn't have many features and/or settings and wasn't intended to, mostly used by programmers for writing code/programs and doesn't add 'hidden' code like a word processor does. It does support editing HTML documents but requires more knowledge of HTML than using GUI programs like FrontPage or Expression Web.

    I'd go with something like suggested, Notepad2 or Notepad++, both good alternatives with more features and free.

    A note: Write is still in C:\Windows but when double-clicked opens WordPad.
