What are the causes of WordPad.exe errors?

If there is any approach to presenting screen captures by means of the snipping tool, it would be much more convenient for us to understand the issue. Without that, here is some rambling description of this issue. Unbelievably, you can cut/ paste out of the WordPad functions and get totally legible stuff back into notepad or gmail. Not identical, but it contains all of the same characters of the original. Sometimes the characters form words, just in different order from the original or in a jumble like the newspaper word scramble problem.

In all cases, the cursor /highlighting process of the pasted content in Word is extremely weird. If you put the cursor in the front of a line and push the forward arrow, the cursor moves backward, backwards arrow and the cursor moves forward. Upon clicking the mouse to highlight a section of text, the highlight is FAR from what is expected, namely, what turns highlighted does not go normally from left to right and from top to bottom.

Briefly speaking, you will see many invisible characters on the screen in your Word doc that are not harmful for Wordpad, but completely bad for Word. It is hard to figure out why they are there and how to make them not there. There is some other setting which needs to be checked on your computer.

Occasionally, it would be better to use the old notepad because it doesn't have all the disturbing distractions, bells & whistles, and second guessing about what you need. Wordpad is applied in case when it is too troublesome to work with MS word. The old notepad gives you the simplicity that you cherish.

Solutions to resolving WordPad.exe problems

Starting to resolve the WordPad.exe issue, you can try to click one document, go into properties and then change "Type of File" to Word. This will make all your other documents be changed into Word. With the font on Automatic your documents can be printed with the font teal on the regular background. Automatic feature is working as usual.

After a computer cleanup, if all of your .doc files change to wordpad files and all .doc files received from email are also converted to wordpad, then you can try converting one wordpad file, and then converting all other wordpad files to .doc. But this is not the way to quickly and easily make the changes permanent. Sometimes availability for accessing Microsoft Word DOC files is not supported because of the improper rendering and formatting issues, as well as a security vulnerability in copying Word files into WordPad.
