You should do this from Printers folder; NOT within any application.

If you are using NT; you should have Administrator access for doing this permanent.

You must change the setting in your default printer.

In properties there you must sellect the settings you want to use.
Save this and the next time that notepad will open he will take the settings from the default printer.

There are many applications which use printers, I don't want to effect all of them, just Notepad.

Lermitte, you are right, Sorry Davidweiss, I should have tested it before submitting my answer. I only went by theory.
Anyway as an appology, I did some research in Microsoft Website, and from what I've been reading Notepad doesn't have the ability to save setting. You can go and check it out for yourself here http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q94/0/05.ASP
In WinNT 3.X notepad can't even save the Word Wrap setting.
Sorry again Davidweiss.
