WordPad, always handy for basic word-processing, just got better. In Windows 7, it has a new ribbon—the strip across the top of the window that shows what a program can do—with choices displayed out in the open rather than in menus.

More formatting options, such as highlighting, bullets, line breaks, and new colors—along with picture insertion and zoom—make WordPad a surprisingly powerful tool.
