WordPad Loads Slowly

I'm using a Nitro AN515-42 Laptop and Windows 10 Version 1903.

This started about a month ago. Whenever I open a document through WordPad, it takes anywhere from 10-15 seconds for it to open. The file size doesn't matter - even single line documents have this issue. I don't have this problem with any other app or program on my computer. I've tried looking for ways to reset or reinstall WordPad, but I can't find it in my Apps & Features or Programs. At worst, it's just a minor inconvenience but I'd really like to get it working smoothly again as I use it so often.

Any help is appreciated.
