word pad on desktop

Specs: Windows 10
Word Pad is already installed in my PC. i can access and edit my Word Pad documents, but when I click on Exit to leave Word Pad, the Word Pad icon disappears from below the ribbon on my desktop screen. How can I get the Word Pad icon to remain below the ribbon on the screen?

Thank you.

Dunno what is happening to your icon but one way around it is to create a permananent shortcut to Wordpad on your desktop.

Just Search for Wordpad and when it finds it right click the entry and select "Open File Location".
This will highlight a shortcut to Wordpad. Copy and Paste this onto the desktop.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

In the Start Menu, search the Wordpad, right click on it and chose Pin to taskbar.

Yes, Windows has always given you several options. Another way is to right click after Search and select "Pin to Start" (if you prefer to use the blocks in the Start Menu).

Another way to Pin it to the Taskbar is to right click on the ion on the Taskbar after opening the program and selecting 'pin to Taskbar' from that menu.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
