1. Step Click on the Start button to open the Start menu. If you are lucky you will already have the notepad on it:
2. Step If you can’t find the notepad on your Start menu, you’ll have to click on All Programs
3. Step A list of programs appears, click on Accessories and then on Notepad
Tip: Now that the notepad is opened, you can create another notepad: Hold down CTRL + N to open another notepad.
Tip 2: Right-click on the notepad shortcut (in accessories) and then click on “Pin to Start Menu” and you will have a shortcut to the notepad on your start menu.
