Notepad++: find throughout the whole document

When you install Notepad++ the default behaviour when using find when searching a word in a document is either choosing up or down.
I find this behaviour really irritating because it stops working when you reach the start or the end of the document.
Fortunately, you can use the not so obvious “Wrap around” option to find a word throughout the whole document.
