Microsoft has announced that it will be killing off WordPad in future versions of Windows.

WordPad is a basic text editor that has been included in Windows since the early days of the operating system. However, Microsoft says that it is no longer necessary, as most users now use more powerful word-processing applications like Microsoft Word or Google Docs.

WordPad was first introduced in Windows 1.0 in 1985. It was a simple text editor that allowed users to create and edit documents. Over the years, WordPad has been updated with new features, but it has never been as powerful or feature-rich as Microsoft Word.

In recent years, the use of WordPad has declined as more and more users have switched to Microsoft Word or Google Docs. Microsoft Word is a powerful word-processing application that offers a wide range of features, while Google Docs is a free online word-processing application that can be used to collaborate with others.

Microsoft says that it will remove WordPad from future versions of Windows. However, the company says that WordPad will still be available in Windows 11. This means that users who still want to use WordPad can do so in Windows 11, but they will not be able to use it in future versions of the operating system.
