You don't need to install WordPad, it's already installed and integrated in to Windows.
Evidently you just don't know where to find it on Windows 8. I can understand that, ever since Windows 7 disappeared, ease of navigation on Windows 8 & 10 has not been one of it's strong points. I hate it.

To find WordPad on Windows 8, see this guide:

It's even on Windows 10 (so far). Like most things, you should be able to find it using the normal Windows search.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

If you tap the Windows key and type Word Pad then programs or settings it will show up as a choice. Click on it. when it is open, right click on the icon on the task bar and select "Pin to Taskbar" and it will always be an icon there even when the program is closed.

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