    Win10 crashed, lost tons of notes in open Wordpad windows


    I had a whole bunch of Wordpad windows open with tons of REALLY important notes and reminders, which I DESPERATELY need to get back.

    None of it was saved, it was just sitting there. Is there ANY way I can have ANY hope of getting that stuff back?

  3. wordpad notepad

    hi

    I went to use WordPad today but am unable to find it in apps. Scrolling down the list it doesn't list notepad or WordPad as an app. I tried to ask Cortana to open it by saying "open WordPad" all I get as a response is her say open what app. looking at the
    speechbox it seems to recognise what I am saying I couldn't get her to open any apps try calculator as well . She did suggest sites on how to open WordPad. In the end I went through file explorer and found a shortcut to WordPad but why isn't it listed as an
    app ?

    Wordpad

    Hello Tatic,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    Please provide some additional information, so that we can assist you better.

    What exactly you mean when you say ‘deleted’, are you referring to the application which was showing in the Start menu or the application was uninstalled from your computer?

    WordPad is a basic word processor that is included with almost all the versions of Microsoft Windows.

    I would suggest you to follow below mentioned steps.

    1. Click on Start menu and type ‘WordPad' in the taskbar search and click on the result. This will open WordPad.
    2. If you’re not able to open WordPad, Press
      Windows + R and type ‘Write’ and hit enter.
    3. You will WordPad application launching on the
      screen.
    4. Navigate to C:\windows\system32\ and look for a ‘write’ (File).
    5. You will see the application now.


    Hope it helps.

    Let us know if you got the help you needed by clicking ‘Yes or No’.
