What happened to Notepad?
I still have mine. Did yesterday anyway.
10 not 11 though.

I'm running Windows 10 Pro 64-bit, version 21H2 (OS Build 19044.1415).

Has Notepad disappeared for anyone else?

Not here. Of course, I haven't updated to 2021H2 yet... still on 2020H2.

Has Notepad disappeared for anyone else?

I noticed a couple days ago that regular .txt files have started opening in LibreOffice, showing the icon for "Calc" which is the LibreOffice equivalent of Excel. When I go to Default Apps to change it back to Notepad, there's no listing for it. And also if I press the Start/Windows button and type Notepad to search for it, I don't get any matching results.

What happened to Notepad?

Okay... Notepad is back. I have no idea what happened to get it back. I decided to go into LibreOffice to see if I could disable filetypes from within the preferences, but it just launched the Windows 10 Default Apps settings menu thingy. I had tried that earlier (before mentioning this whole Notepad fiasco this thread) but I had forgotten that it did that.

However, this time Notepad showed up in the options. And now I also see it in the start menu when I search for it. :-\ :huh:
