Microsoft recommends Word or Notepad instead

Nearly three decades after its release, Microsoft is poised to destroy the much-deserved WordPad application. This is stated in the updated Microsoft documentation.

WordPad is no longer in development and will not receive new features or updates, the company said. Moreover, a future Windows update will remove the program from the operating system. Instead, Microsoft recommends using Microsoft Word for rich text documents (RTF and DOC) and Notepad for plain text documents such as TXT.

Recall that 28 years ago, Microsoft announced WordPad as the successor to a text editor called Microsoft Write. WordPad became available as part of Windows 95, Microsoft’s newest operating system at the time. Since then, WordPad has been present in every version of Windows, providing users with basic text editing capabilities, and supporting RTF, DOC, ODT, and other popular formats.
