    Remove Paint 3d


    Granted this is only my opinion but who thought everyone would like having MS Paint removed to be replaced by a program meant more for touch screens than for those of us with keyboard/mouse abilities. They could have offered both.
    I have tried three different reg fixes recommended on various web sites, two of which mention a key in the reg I don't*even have.
    Once again ant help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks folks

    Hello Tommy,

    If you like, you could use the method in the tutorial below to restore the old Paint (mspaint.exe) app.
