Microsoft to Remove WordPad from Windows: What You Need to Know

Are you a fan of the classic WordPad app that has been a part of Windows for nearly 30 years?

If so, you may be disappointed to hear that Microsoft is planning to remove WordPad from future Windows releases.

Microsoft is no longer updating WordPad and plans to remove the word processor from a future release of Windows. 

The software giant will recommend Microsoft Word, its paid word processor that has always been far more feature-rich than the basic WordPad app.

So, what can you do if you’re a fan of WordPad? 

There are plenty of alternatives available for you to choose from. 

Some popular alternatives include LibreOffice Writer, Google Docs, and even the lowly text-only NotePad app. 

When choosing an alternative to WordPad, it’s important to consider your specific needs. 

Do you need a word processor with advanced formatting options? 

Or do you prefer a simple app for taking notes? 

Make sure to research the features of each app before making a decision.
