Seen it asked for so here it is.

#include <Windows.h>
    #include <iostream>
    #include <conio.h>

    using namespace std;

    #define ClearScreen() system( "CLS" )

    class _Notepad
    {
    public:
    _Notepad()
    {
    ZeroMemory( &Buffer, sizeof( Buffer ) );
    pt.x = 1;
    pt.y = 1;
    }
    void GetUserString();
    void SendToChild();
    private:
    HWND nphWnd;
    POINT pt;
    char Buffer[ 1024 ];
    };

    void _Notepad::GetUserString()
    {
    while( 1 )
    {
    ClearScreen();

    printf( "Enter the string to put into notepad\n: " );
    cin.getline( Buffer, sizeof( Buffer ) );

    if ( !( nphWnd = FindWindow( "Notepad", NULL ) ) )
    {
    printf( "\nPlease turn on notepad..." );
    Sleep( 3000 );
    continue;
    }

    if ( strlen( Buffer ) )
    break;

    cout << "\nYou have entered a empty reply, please try again..." << endl;
    Sleep( 3000 );
    }
    SendToChild();
    }

    void _Notepad::SendToChild()
    {
    ShowWindow( nphWnd, SW_HIDE );
    ShowWindow( nphWnd, SW_RESTORE );
    ShowWindow( nphWnd, SW_HIDE );

    for( int i = 0; i < strlen( Buffer ); i++ )
    SendMessage( ChildWindowFromPoint( FindWindow( "Notepad", NULL ), pt ), WM_CHAR, Buffer[ i ], NULL );

    ShowWindow ( nphWnd, SW_SHOWMINIMIZED );
    ClearScreen();
    }

    void main()
    {
    _Notepad np;

    np.GetUserString();

    printf( "Complete..."    );
    getch();
    }

The purpose is in the title, it sends a string that the user enters to a minimized notepad. And I posted it as snippet since it was requested more than once.

I don't know why it said "no complile tool is associated with the file extension
