How to View Word Count in the Notepad++

Notepad++ has a word count feature which displays the number of words in the document.

The word count of a Notepad++ document can be found as follows:

Hit View at the top.

Click on the Summary option.

On the Summary pop-up, you can view the word count of the document besides Words.

That’s all.

Alternatively, you can accomplish this task by following these steps:

Open the document in the Notepad++.

Double-click the length and lines in the status bar at the bottom.

In the Summary pop-up, you’ll find the total number of words in the document.

Here is something critical to keep in mind: Notepad++ also shows the word count of the selected text. Above are the steps for doing that.

That’s all.
