WordPad Is Missing!  One Of The Questions From the Past Weekend.  Went As Follows.

I donít know how they did it but the grandkids were playing with the computer and when finished WordPad was missing.

I did like I normally do.  Ask questions.  I always have questions.

To begin with, how did they remove it?  Did they just remove the Start menu shortcut to it?  If so, then it is pretty easy to recreate that.  Right-click anywhere on the desktop (not on an icon) and select the "New -> Shortcut" option.  

When prompted for a location, type "C:\Program Files\Windows NT\Accessories\wordpad.exe" (include the "" when typing it in).  Click the Next button, name the shortcut whatever you want, and then click the Finish button.

Try double-clicking on the new shortcut.  If Wordpad opens up, then click and drag the shortcut wherever you want on the Start menu.  If you get an error message when you are creating the shortcut that states that the application could not be found, then you will need to get the Windows XP install disc.

On the Windows XP install disc, there should be a directory named i386.  Within that directory should be an application named "write.exe".  Copy that application to the "C:\Program Files\Windows NT\Accessories\" directory and rename it to "wordpad.exe".

Now, do the steps to create the shortcut and drag the shortcut onto the Start menu.
