WordPad, the free word processor that has been bundled with Windows for the past 28 years, will be discontinued by Microsoft Corporation. The company announced the change in a support note that was just published.
The brief statement from Microsoft read, “WordPad is no longer being updated and will be removed in a future release of Windows.” “We recommend Windows Notepad for plain text files like.txt and Microsoft Word for rich text files like.doc and.rtf.” WordPad first appeared in Windows 95, a version of Windows that was released to end users in August 1995.
The operating system needed a hard drive with a capacity of 50 megabytes, a processor running at 40 megahertz, and 4 megabytes of memory. The Start button and internet access were introduced for the first time in this version of Windows.
