    We need some more information then what you provided.

    What operating system are you running?
    Have you looked here? "%ProgramFiles%\Windows NT\Accessories\wordpad.exe"
    Have you tried typing wordpad in the search bar?

    Hi John, Thank you for the support,
    My opporating system is - 64 bit
    Windows 7 Dell . 6320
    most unfortunately, all that comes up with your link
    when placed in - search progs and files - bar is - wordpad shortcut.
    same thing happens when I type in the word - wordpad..
    I really do not want the short cut- I want the proper wordpad that was, originally, on my comp ..
    Is there anything else I can do to recover it, Please ? :(

    What happens when you click on the shortcut for wordpad, does it open? If it does, then wordpad is still on your system. If not, then all you really need to do is access a different windows 7 system and copy the wordpad.exe file from that one and transfer it to yours. Just make sure you put it C:\ProgramFiles\Windows NT\Accessories
