I have Windows XP on my computer. Can anyone tell me how to fix the left and right margins on Notepad (which comes with Windows XP) so that I can get those same margins and font that I choose every time I open Notepad? Thank you very much. user470

You can't.

It comes with it's own defaults. It's just a very basic text editor.

If you're interested in fonts and margins use a word processor. Wordpad (comes with XP also) suffices. But even that doesn't have a memory for settings.

Notepad is all about text editing and not text layout. You may want to look into Notepad++ as well as a word processor.
