Welcome to the forum!

NotePad is a "baby version" of the "full Finale", using the same .mus file format as the "full Finale".
This means that NotePad is very limited in its layout capabilities.
After all, NotePad is a free program.
Ya gets what ya pays fer!

I could be wrong here, but I doubt that NotePad can access a .mus document's barline choices.
In the "full Finale" it is done with the Measure Tool.
You can context-click a measure, and choose a barline style in a sub-menu.
Or you can double-click a measure, and choose a barline style in a dialog box.

Peter is correct; NotePad can't do it. You would have to purchase (at a minimum) SongWriter, which has the barline options.
