I'm on an Emacs hiatus, trying notepad++.

I'm bothered by the large grayish translucent bar that highlights whatever line the cursor occupies.  Makes the foreground colors hard to see if background is not white.  I want to configure my background and foreground colors.  This is problematic.

Anyone know how to turn off and just have a wide blinking cursor? No big gray bar going across the screen? tks
