Windows 7: Notepad adjustment

Notepad adjustment

Hi

How can I fix the Notepad function on Win 7 Home Premium 64 bit so that you get an automatic carriage return when you reach the right hand end of the page? This new version doesn't seem to have any, and just carries on writing right off towards the right into infinity. This makes copy harder to read as you have to keep scrolling along to the right as you're reading and if you have to edit what you've written you just end up with a mess. If you make the carriage return yourself it still doesn't work out right and you end up with twice as much editing. The old XP version of Notepad automatically made a carriage return at the right end of the page and was simple and straightforward to use.
