    Hey all,

    I reformated last month and have basically got my system back to the way it was, got all my settings and stuff back. Thus far I've only noticed two occurances that I find a little annoying. First off when I minimize WMP9 it no longer goes into the cool miniplayer mode on the taskbar .. instead it just minimizes like any other window. The next prob is with wordpad .. I think I'm the only person who still uses this, but I'll ask anyway. Basically whenever I read anything or type anything into wordpad it just shows up as one line, I mean it doesn't return down to the next line or format the text right. You can imagine how difficult it is to read a long readme if its all on one line. I don't know how these progs got wrong settings and I don't know how to stop it, any advice?

    Wordpad > View > Options - check "Wrap to window" or "Wrap to ruler" for each type (i.e text, rich text, word,write).
