I'll be continuing to learn paint.net if you need me.
I am DUMB, okay? Dumb as a post! Think I'm happy about it?

I always found it handy for for flip, crop, rotate,and drawing arrows on screenshots.

I Did not see any mention in the article about what the formal replacement will be. Not sure I dig the idea of that 3D paint they talked about.

I have found Paint to be extremely useful.

Paste a Print Screen and then crop just the info I want

Then select and copy into an email or just to save for future reference.

I have not tried Paint 3D which is supposed to replace Paint

My guess, MS will charge us for the 3D version.

If not at first, then later.

MS is supposedly moving to a yearly license for Windows 10

Who knows..........

Hey, all, just found this on Fox News Tech -

MS says Paint will still be available for free but for 'new' Windows 10

You have to download from MS and install.
