Several basic questions, please, about Notepad and on HELP in general..

  1. Is Notepad built-in to my W10 desktop?

  2. Where is it? In what folder?

  3. How do I open Notepad to create a xxx.txt document?


  4. How could I have gotten answers to these kinds of questions myself, using the Help systems within W10? (In the past, with XP, I was able to get a lot of help from the HELP provided – but with W10 (which I assume is just as helpful) I have never learned how to use the HELP provided.)

Thanks. …. batpark

Use google.


As a general rule you can click on Start then type what you are looking for.For instance, notepad. WHne I do that I get






at the top left of the Start menu. Click on any one of them to open notepad. If you right click on either Notepadf, you will see a Open file location whcih you can use to see where it resides.
