I know you guys are probably like "That's impossible!" but I have looked everywhere for it on my MacBook Pro and I cannot seem to find it. I using the most updated software. Can someone either tell me a failsafe way to find it or give me a download link please? Thanks.

Yes I checked there and a lot of other places. I found a suitable replacement, or maybe the actual thing, and it seems to be doing the job as of right now. I just thought all Macs came with TextEdit to begin with....

Did you try searching your computer with "Spotlight"?

Actually you didn't say that you "tried every method for searching"...what you did say is you "looked everywhere for it".

"Looking everywhere for it"...is not the same as "I think that I tried every method for searching".

Did you open Finder and use search for TextEdit ?
If you have Time Machine up and running you can get it back.

Well you knew what I meant, and I am not trying to be mean or anything lol.

I think I found a replacement, and I don't have Time Machine running, and I did search in Finder. Thanks anyways guys.
