If you're asking where notepad.exe is then it's in the WINDOWS folder. Many microsoft made programs are in the WINDOWS folder so you can run them by typing their name, no path.


Notepad - notepad.exe

Paint - mspaint.exe

Command Prompt - cmd.exe

Internet Explorer - iexplore.exe

But other programs you have to put the whole pathname


Firefox - C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe

Yahoo IM - C:\Program Files\Yahoo!\Messenger\YahooMessenger.exe

uTorrent - C:\Program Files\uTorrent\uTorrent.exe

Hope that helps.

o thx this is helpful^^ what is .exe what is .bat or anything

Executable file types.

The most common ones are

.exe, .bat, .com, .cmd, .hta

Non-Executable file types would be like .txt, .mdb, .htm, .reg. These types need an executable to run them. They will not run on their own. In AutoIt the easiest way to run a non-executable type is to use ShellExecute() or ShellExecuteWait(). For executable types you can either use the same two functions or you can use Run() RunWait().

There are several lists of file types available on a Google search. Here is one
