Nothing you report indicates malfunction or misbehavior, hence you need not
attempt to fix anything.
Note that since your PATH is set so that "which" (or the BASH built-in
"type") successfully locate the "notepad" executable, all you need to do to
run that program is type its simple name (no path syntax, no suffix).
Work with the system and let it work for you.
