    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’.
