Windows 7: Where is the Wordpad?

October 1, 2010 · Posted in Windows · Comment 

Every time when I open some Unix/Linux formatted (different newline format than Windows) text file on Windows’ desktop, I have to find the WordPad.exe when the Windows pop-up asks “Windows can’t open this file” and “What do you want to do?.”

I would select “Select a program from a list of installed programs.”

I could open from the list but it is not listed, then I have to browse it. Where is it?

Well, at least for Windows 7, it is in: C:\Program Files\Windows NT\Accessories as “wordpad.exe”
