What Happened? Answered

I was fascinated by batch programs at the time. It was about 2 months ago. I was copying the code for ScrewTheLotOfYou's Whack-a-Mole file when something I can't explain happened. After I saved the program as Whack.bat, I opened it up and... It was a Notepad program made with cmd type format. It even had a pointer that followed your mouse around! It was a small rectangle that was the opposite color as the thing you were highlighting. You could Open/Save programs and everything! I checked the code for it, but it was the code for Whack-a-Mole. I was mad a first because I couldn;t play the game, and didn't think much of it. Now, the game works perfectly and I'm mad because I can't get back to the Notepad program!

Looks like you're describing the "EDIT" command...

Type in EDIT in your command prompt and tell me if it is what you saw...

Sounds like you stumbled upon an easter egg - must have hit the right key combo somehow.

Maybe the code fairies were on their day off?
