Windows 10: Remove Paint 3d

    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
