Description:
The MySQL server log files uses the \n or <LF> character (HEX 0A) character for 'new line'.  On Windows standard is \r\n or <CR><LF> (HEX 0D0A)

Log files on Windows should be written accordingly for compliance with most Windows texteditors (including Notepad).

How to repeat:
open a logfile in Notepad for instance ....

Suggested fix:
good idea! :-)

Hi Peter. Thanks for your report. This is actually S4 issue. As a workaround, use WordPad for now.

I know there are plenty of editors that handle this.

Nevertheless I disagree that this is a FEATURE REQUEST.  It is a BUG!
Software designed to run on a certain platform should follow the standards of that platform!
