In Windows 10, if I run Wordpad from Start Menu, I see it in Process Explorer, as expected. It's also visible if I open a file for which Wordpad is the default application, by double-click. But if it's not the default application for the file, and I run it by right-clicking a .doc file,  selecting "Open With...", and selecting Wordpad, Wordpad does not show up in Process Explorer. Dragging target icon on its window results in the error message "The owning process is wordpad.exe (process ID xxxxx), which is not currently visible in the process list". Why is is it not visible?
