  • Need help with windows 10 again....
  • Can not get mspaint to open. I like to take screen shots and then past them into paint.exe to make a jpeg or picture file. I followed the shortcut and the .exe file is there but when I click on it nothing happens.

    How do I make it work again?

  • A recent update to Windows 10 on my laptop killed most of the apps that came with Windows. All it would give me was an "app failed to launch" error message. No indication why or how to fix. Everything on-line said stuff like reinstall windows. That was the last straw. I'm almost too old to learn new tricks, but have been running MX-Linux in a dual boot for some time, so I used this excuse to delete windows and use Linux full time.

  • Did you try typing to type "open paint" in the white space in the lower left of your screen, often it will do what you ask or show you how. Also try a chat with a MS help person or placing a call me back request with MS that will get a MS person to call you back in a few minutes.
