Word's disappearance and unasked replacement by WordPad

Suddenly, Word has vanished and WordPad is here instead. When I clicked on a document, it said that WordPad did not support everything. I would like Word back as I do not think it should have been removed without my consent and I do not care for WordPad.

'Suddenly' you ask a question on a forum which has nothing to do with Microsoft or any of its products....

How should any reader her know WHY Word has vanished?

Maybe it's a new feature of Word?

Als you do not tell us which version of Windows you are using, and the version of Word is also missing. (not that this makes much difference to the posted question, but ...)

The only 'proper' answers I can give:
"I would like Word back"
please re-install

"I do not care for WordPad"
it's a free feature of Windows.
