It's nice, but *ghasp, critique!* the number and symbol are too antialiased.

I am wondering if someone knows how to change  the paint program in windows 7 to windows xp paint program D: I just hate the new one.
Same thing here, but I miss my old Windows Vista non-AA'ed brush sizes..  :yell:


Can this be done, and if so, where can I find it on my old pc?

Get graphics gale.
The free version should be able to do everything paint can do and more.
Does scaling an image blur it?

Forgot to say im an epic Ms Paint mindless fanboy.  :y:


In reality, I'd prefer any program having the "hold the left/right mouse button and while at it, instant undo by pressing the opposite one" feature, as well as the dual mouse button painting commands.

Other programs might have the fanciest of features, but if they lack the two I mentioned above, then I simply consider them obsolete. After all, everything I need to pixel is a good ol' brush and a trusty zoom.


But the problem remains unsolved -can I get my Vista back?  :'(

I think the old saying "beggars can't be choosers" applies here.

You could try downloading it, or ask some friend with Windows Vista or less to copy the exe for you.

http://www.askvg.com/how-to-get-the-good-old-ms-paint-without-ribbons-working-in-windows-7/

First result on Google for "get old mspaint on windows 7."

I run into the same page :P, that's why I suggested asking someone who has Vista to copy it. Then I realized I could just copy my Windows XP version to him :P and send it via PM.

Yeah, sure. Google.

I searched for hours before asking, tried replacing exe and mui files, deleted the old mspaint.exe after working out the permissions, and even downloaded mods to see if I could work this out, but nothing brought results.

It just comes up with the "Could not open a document" error message..


Seems like im gonna have to settle with Pro motion then.  :n:

You'll get used to it, and in a few weeks, you'll never believe that you used to prefer such a clunky, slow, unfriendly program.  :y:
