    In Cortana or the search box, type in notepad and it will show up in the results list. Then you may want to pin it to the start screen/task bar since it wont show up in the app list.

    Addendum: It is in the listing...

    Start > All Apps > Windows Accessories

    I use Word as a go-to... Or WordPad sometimes.

    About the only time I use NotePad is when it is something someone else made and I'm opening it. LOL. Like the all important "Read Me" file.

    Meanwhile I enjoy playing with the screen recorder App.

    I use Notepad++, though I do prefer the icon for Notepad better.
