In windows for me, loading an LF file made with Notepad++, it keeps it as LF.
Any new lines made are then CR+LF.

Windows does seem to add an extra CR+LF, e.g. a file showing as
this line was made in notepad++, unix mode #has lf here
#There is a CR+LF here, but it doesn't show a line break in
notepad...does in notepad ++
this line was made in windows notepad #has cr+lf
this line has no ending character
