  1. Win 10 1903 has resulted in Notepad not installed


    Hi, so as the title indicates, I updated to the latest version of 10 and now when I click my Notepad shortcut it says "it looks like notepad isn't installed, would you like to install it".

    The exe file for notepad is in system32 but when I double click that it gives the same message.

    How do I get notepad back? I know I can use wordpad but I liked notepad better and am also just bugged by this problem.

    Thanks

    :)

    Windows 10 1903 update - resulting problems

    Hi Vijay,

    Thank you for the rapid response.

    Your suggested actions are very technical - hardly for 'the man in the street'

    '

    If I understand correctly, in simple terms, you are suggesting changing the path/method of obtaining the 1903 update but still installing it anyway -

    Surely if the problem is actually with the 1903 update then the result will be the same problems irrespective of how it is applied?

    Please could you clarify in simple terms, step by step, what your suggested actions actually do and how this may solve the problem.

    Thanks,

    Mike Longley.

    Access to Notepad denied after EVERY log in to Win 10.

    I also tried to find the notepad icon (as suggested by another source) in C;\Windows\Systems32 but could not get it to accept notepad.exe
