What is wordpad.exe?

Part of Windows Wordpad Application by Microsoft

What is it?

WordPad is a basic word processor that is included with almost all versions of Microsoft Windows. It is more advanced than Notepad but simpler than Microsoft Word. WordPad can format and print text, but lacks intermediate features such as a spell checker, thesaurus, and support for tables. As such, it is suitable for writing letters or short pieces, but underpowered for work that relies heavily on graphics or typesetting. WordPad natively supports the Rich Text Format.
