Notepad missing in Windows 10 v2004

Hi, today I wanted to use the notepad for a task and found that it is missing from my computer.

Steps did so far:

1) opened the file explorer and entered "C:\Windows\System32\Notepad"

2) opened win+R and entered Notepad.

The following error message pops up.

any help is appreciated. Thanks!

I had the same problem. I found out that Notepad became an optional feature in v2004. You can install it by using Settings>Apps&Features>Optional Features>Add a Feature.
