Windows 7: wordpad

wordpad

I just got Windows 7 Premium home. I can't find wordpad or any of the accessories. I've tried searching. Where are they? If they were removed for some inexplicable reason, where can I downloade wordpad? I couldn't find that either when I searched Microsoft.

Wordpad lives in C Program Files / Windows NT / accessories.

You can open it by typing wordpad in the start button search box.

Hi Lillian and a warm welcome to the Forum.
Wordpad should be in the same place it was in XP. Click Start then All Programs then Accessories and in the drop down list there's Wordpad! You can always create a shortcut to it if you use it a lot!
