Someone in my family brought it to my attention that on my computer if you go
on a website, right click and try to click view source that it pops up a box
saying "windows cannot find notepad"..... I know I have notepad on my
computer, what can I do to fix this?

Make sure Notepad.exe is in the default location. I have one in
C:\Windows and one in C:\Windows\system32.

The path to Notepad.exe in the registry should also be correct.
