  • Hi,

    Please use Task Manager, and check if notepad.exe is closed or running in minimized state.

    If notepad.exe is still running, it would be grouped/combined with other application in the Taskbar.
    If this is correct, please change setting of Taskbar.
    Right click on the Taskbar > set Taskbar buttons: [Never combine]

  • Hi,

    Do other programs have the same problem? Have you tried to use ALT+TAB to max the window?

    To make the problem more clearly, the notepad is disappear from here ,right?

    Have you tried to boot into Safe Mode, seeing if the problem still exists?

    It is suggested that you can run Windows Defender to scan full system for security.
