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:

Win 10 update  02-10-22.jpgWindows 10 Announced    WSL directory list.jpgWindows 10 Announced    Start menu Ubuntu.jpgWindows 10 Announced   WSL status.jpgWindows 10 Announced

I got Win 10 20H2 today and installed WSL and Ubuntu without incident. I can use them with PowerShell and the start menu icon. I installed gedit to test WSL graphics and got the following error messages:

[email protected]:~# gedit
Unable to init server: Could not connect: Connection refused

(gedit:92): Gtk-WARNING **: 21:20:15.063: cannot open display:
[email protected]:~#

I did this on a  HP Pavilion Gaming Desktop TG01-2xxx with AMD Radeon RX 5500 v21.10.2 graphics  that is up to date. I will update this when I get anything from Microsoft Feedback Hub.

What makes you think there is such a thing as "WSL graphics"? As far as I'm aware there is no "display" connected to the WSL Linux VM. It's for terminal/console use only.

GWSL
What on Earth does this do? What is it for? How can it help me?

GWSL automates the process of running X on top of WSL and over SSH:
  • It lets you easily run graphical Linux apps on Windows 10.
  • It lets you run graphical apps located on remote Linux machines.
  • It provides a simple UI for launching Linux apps, managing them graphically, and creating customized Windows shortcuts for them.
  • All this at the click of a button! No memorization of commands necessary. Easy!

https://github.com/microsoft/wslg (Windows 11)

WSLg is short for Windows Subsystem for Linux GUI and the purpose of the project is to enable support for running Linux GUI applications (X11 and Wayland) on Windows in a fully integrated desktop experience.

WSLg provides an integrated experience for developers, scientists or enthusiasts that prefer or need to run Windows on their PC but also need the ability to run tools or applications which works best, or exclusively, in a Linux environment. While users can accomplish this today using a multiple system setup, with individual PC dedicated to Windows and Linux, virtual machine hosting either Windows or Linux, or an XServer running on Windows and projected into WSL, WSLg provides a more integrated, user friendly and productive alternative.

WSLg strives to make Linux GUI applications feel native and natural to use on Windows. From integration into the Start Menu for launch to appearing in the task bar, alt-tab experience to enabling cut/paste across Windows and Linux applications, WSLg enables a seamless desktop experience and workflow leveraging Windows and Linux applications.

The last can use GPU hardware acceleration.
