Display a Binary file in Column format
Can a Binary file be Displayed in Column format?
This is so wrong of a question to ask about a text editor, that I’m not surprised you asked it twice in two threads.
ANSWER: Don’t use a text editor to edit binary files.
Given that you are going to continue using a text editor to edit binary files, what do you mean by “column format”?
Not going to edit the file just want to look at it.
What I mean by column format is for every record in the
file it has 2 columns. NotePad++ is putting the entire file on
Never mind I got.

Well, that’s because it is a text editor.
And text editors consider a line to be something that ends with a carriage-return + line-feed, or just a line-feed, or just a carriage-return.
Thus Notepad++ isn’t wrapping any lines in your file because it is not of text format, so there is nothing to wrap.
You need to adjust your thinking to what you are trying to do with what tools/data, and not think that Notepad++ should adapt itself to what you are attempting.
I can only think of using the Hex-Editor plug-in.
