Did Microsoft remove Notepad from Windows 10 Pro 2004?

I did a system reset and afterwards, I noticed that Notepad is no longer installed. And if you have to go to Microsoft Store and download the one in there that MS made: Windows Notepad then they need to fix it because it thinks Windows 10 2004 is a lower version.

If anyone has updated with a clean install of Windows 10 2004, please check for notepad and let me know if its just me.

Hello StewartMedbourn,

Thank you for updating me that information. Did you try to check the "Manage optional features"? Notepad and Paint become optional features in Windows 10.

I hope this helps! Please let me know if you have any further concerns.
