Editorial note: This may not apply to any of our regular visitors, but I'm posting it anyway. The Gooble Search© will find it, and help out thousands upon thousands of folks such as myself that truly HATE the version of "Paint" that accompanies Windows 7.
I use "Microsoft Paint" a lot. Not every day, but often. As y'all know, I got a new comprutuh, which runs Windows 7 instead of my familiar old XP. No major objections...7 is way cool, and has lots of good junk I'm learning about. But, I truly HATE the new p.o.s. "Paint" that Microsoft has come up with to run on Windows 7!!!
The old XP Paint was clean, easy to use, and gave bitchin' results for even the most retarded amongst us. I wanted my old "Paint" back.
Not surprisingly, while looking around for a solution, I discovered that there are multiple billions of others that share my confusion, disappointment, and curiosity as to how to get back the Old Paint that we know and love. (Well, not really multiple billions...but a bunch of folks).
There are downloads that you can get. But to be honest, some of the warnings scared me...having a new comprutuh and all, I DO NOT want to get infected. Sure, they are probably okay, but I've hung around the 'net long enough to know that if there is another way, I'd rather take it.
The best advice I found is exactly what I did.
Just go find any older machine running XP (The Mrs.' machine does). Go in and use the "Search" function. Search for "System32" on drive C:
When you find that folder, open it. Scroll down until you find "mspaint," or "mspaint.exe." (The Mrs.' machine just showed "mspaint.")
Send that file to a thumb drive. Put the thumb drive in your new computer that runs Windows 7. Save MSPaint to any location from which you'd like to access it (I dropped it on the Desktop).
Sure enough, I GOT MY OLD PAINT BACK!
Works like a champ, too!
That is all. Don't bother to thank me.
