Windows Notepad is an awesome text editor when it comes to quick viewing and editing text or HTML or other programming language files. Though it does not have most advance features with a text file, we still have some basic features that can be very helpful.

Working with a large file you may want to jump to a particular line number, follow the below step,

Menu: Edit → Go to,

This will pop out a dialog box with a text filed, just enter the line number where you want to jump, now the cursor will be at the start of that line number.

Note there is a keyboard shortcut Ctrl + G that can be used to open Goto Line dialog.
