So sorry. I am new to this. The site is not too user friendly when it comes to what you can choose in terms of U-Verse technical support, or maybe I'm not sure what to choose given the few choices they give you to choose from in terms of what your problem might be. Okay, so I have U-Verse Internet, which I access my email on my PC. When I open my mail, I can see my emails on the right, and on the left is where you see your folders, at least that is what I see when I open my AT&T (Yahoo!) Mail. These folders are labeled "Inbox", "Conversations','Drafts','Sent',' Spam', & "Drafts." Below that I see "Folders" with a down arrow. This is where I can add folders to save all my different emails in. Below that I see the title "Applications" with a down arrow and a "Add or remove apps" icon. Below that, I see tiltles like, "Attach Large Files", "Attachments",'Automatic Organizer","Calendar", "Flickr","Photos", and "Send us feedback." In that section, if you open your email through AT&T (Yahoo!) Mail, there used to be an "App" called "Notepad," which I am referring to. You would click on it to open it. You could then make a file with whatever you wanted like a WORD file, and save it by giving it a file name. I was like the Notepad app that is a Windows based application, but was found and used here. It was there a couple of weeks or so ago, because I use it fairly often. When I wanted to access it last week, it was gone. I looked to see if I inadvertently moved it into another Folder, or if I accidently deleted it, which I know I did not do. I checked the "Add or remove apps" section, and there is nothing there that shows anything about it either. Does that help?
Solved! Go to Solution.

I do not remember anything about a "Cloud" type folder called Notepad. What you are thinking of, is the "Cloud" folder called Attachments, which you saves attachments that you have sent in emails.
The item you are talking about, was a Widget, which was discontinued back in 2011. See the following: http://widgets.yahoo.com/widgets/yahoo-notepad
I did some digging, which you could have done through a search, and found what you are talking about http://notepad.yahoo.com/ It is still there, just was never a part of the email applications section.

Hey, guess what? I finally figured it out. If I go back to Mail Classic, Notepad is there. The newer version did take it out. Thought you might like to know. Thanks anyways for your help.

I have been using AT&T Yahoo Mail Classic which had notepad readily available when you opened your email page. It was an icon near the top of your email window and all you had to do to access notepad was click on the icon labeled notepad and you were golden.
Two days ago I got forced to switch from AT&T Yahoo Mail Classic to their new version and was told I could not switch back to mail classic.
I have always used the notepad feature and found it very convenient to have a place to keep my notes which I was able to access from any computer. The New AT&T Yahoo Mail did not have the notepad icon anymore and I went into a panic thinking all my notes were erased with this new version.
I called AT&T tech support and although they were able to get the notepad app to appear on the lower left section under the Application setting it would only display one tiny line of information that looked liked it was font size 3 which I could not read.
After spending (2) hours on the phone with tech support with them taking control of my mouse remotely and not having any luck getting notepad to display in a legible format we got cut off.
Rather than calling them back and starting the whole process with someone new I decided to research the problem on my own.
I found a link to the AT&T Yahoo notepad app and it opened in full page glory with all my previous notes and folders intact. I then added this notepad page to my favorites tool bar and now I can access AT&T Yahoo Notepad directly from the favorites toolbar and do not have to access it from my AT&T Yahoo mail page. This now enables me to view AT&T Yahoo Notepad anytime I want even if I am not on my yahoo mail page. I am using IE8 as my browser.
I was able to access notepad from Firefox and Google Chrome from my AT&T Yahoo Mail page but they were also very tiny even though on these browsers there were some adjustments available. It would be very tedious to use the notepad feature within your AT&T Yahoo Mail on these other browsers.
My fix was to add the AT&T Yahoo Notepad to my favorites toolbar on IE8 and view it full page bypassing the NEW AT&T Yahoo Mail completely.
You can find AT&T Yahoo Notepad here...
After logging into your account you should be go to go. Hope this helps.

I had bookmarked my yahoo notepad in favorites. It disappeared from my yahoo mail page, but I could still access it thru bookmarks. Now I get either a security message I don't understand - but proceeded to go to the site where I get a calendar instead - or, I get a message to upgrade my browser to IE8 which I already have. No notepad, only calendar. No way to directly access.
The arrogance of discontinuing something that held info is astounding. I believe my notes are gone forever. Good job, ATT Yahoo.
