    Is there no simple graphic editing or notetaking apps?

    Preloaded like every other version of Windows?

    Excuse my ignorance but I feel like I am experiencing my first experience on a computer all over again.

    Thank You!

    Well for some reason MSI Laptops chose not to add notepad to the start screen, however I did find it thank you. Is there still no simple graphic editing software as there was with Win 7? (If you could remind me of the name of that it would be greatly appreciated. I can not phathom that M/S would not include something so basic?????

    Is there possibly a free app for simple graphic work?
