    People: I wish MS would get rid of that legacy junk and bloat from windows...

    Same people: Paint and screensavers? Nooooooooooooooooooooooo!


    They've been trying to kill Paint off since Windows 8, first with 'Fresh Paint' and now with Paint 3D...

    They should've replaced MS Paint with Paint.Net years ago allready, as this project was intended to. Only 7 MB download if you want to take a look at it and rather powerful for such a small program.

    I hope paint sticks around for many years to come. I find it quite handy.

    Paint is an absolute must have, a more convenient place to paste screenshots to and crop them does not exist.

    Wouldn't you just use Snipping Tool and have your screenshots the right size to start with?

    I find print screen button on keyboard then pasting it into paint much more convenient.

    What about apps like lightshot? Can just press Print Screen and crop there and then in a moment, or configure to do other things.

    Or just use ALT+Print screen to capture the active window once you've resized it.
