Windows 7: Wordpad recovery in Start>All Programs>Accessories

Wordpad recovery in Start>All Programs>Accessories

It didn't just go missing. You know who made it disappear.
I went to Start Menu propertes and seen something I've never seen before but was looking for. The opportunity to organize All Programs to my order of frequency preferance instead of alphabetical.
JUST unchecked Sort All Programs menu by name and exited.
Went to Start>All Programs>Accessories, held left mouse button down on Wordpad while I dragged it up below Calculator and released it.
Now I had 2 Wordpads(one at the top and at the bottom of Accessories) so I deleted the bottom one and the top one went with it.
I can still access Wordpad by opening .rtf doc.
I dragged Notepad, Paint, Snipping Tool and Command Prompt up there with no problem.
Hopefully all I need is a little magical string of text to copy into Run or Cmd

Hello Well,

If you like you could create a new shortcut for WordPad in the Start Menu using the path below.

C:\Windows\write.exe

Start Menu All Programs - Add or Delete Shortcuts


OR

Start Menu All Programs in Windows 7 - Restore Default Shortcuts

Hope this helps,
Shawn
