    Notepad

    Greetings from the Great White North. Does anyone know what happened to the NotePad application that was available in Windows? I have XP Professional and have done thorough search of my hard drive and cannot find it. Any information that anyone would care to provide would be graciously appreciated. Thanks. <img src=/S/compute.gif border=0 alt=compute width=40 height=20>

    It should be in the C:WINDOWSsystem32 folder (notepad.exe). It should also be accessible from Start>All Programs>Accessories.

    I myself get to it quickly by pressing Win+R to get the Run dialog and then typing in notepad. Works faster than clicking, since it's in the system search path. <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    If you're lucky enough not to have Notepad installed (for whatever reason), or even if you do have it, you might want to upgrade to WinPad. I like it as a replacement because it's similarly lightweight, with just enough added features to compensate for Notepad's inadequacies, and without trying to be a feature-rich word processor. <img src=/S/free.gif border=0 alt=free width=30 height=15>ware too!

    John and Mark, thanks for the insight. I finally found it. <img src=/S/thankyou.gif border=0 alt=thankyou width=40 height=15>

    Alan, I will have at Winpad. If its better, then why not. I used to have one called Notespad, but I cannot find it. <img src=/S/cheers.gif border=0 alt=cheers width=30 height=16>

    Another excellent <img src=/S/free.gif border=0 alt=free width=30 height=15> alternative to Notepad for strictly Plain Text editing is Metapad. Give it a look see. <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>
