    1903: Notepad freezes

    Just upgraded to 1903. Tried to run Notepad from shortcut and then from .exe in Windows. Freezes and calls home when I try to close it. Other editors (Text Pad, Sciteforautohotkey, Notepad++) work OK. Worked fine in 1809. Help!

    - Later: can open an existing .txt file with Notepad using "Open with" in context menu. So might work around by constructing a shortcut to an almost empty file. But . . .

    pps: tried ms store: Notepad For Windows 10. What a piece of . . .

    Didn't work. Same response.

    Found old Notepad.exe in Windows.old and it works. As long as I start it in Windows.old. Copying to a different directory or making a shortcut doesn't work; it refuses to run at all. Need a copyable version.
