This isn't really an HP issue. But today I wanted to copy and paste a different picture into one of my articles. My computer switched itself to Microsoft 10, and what was Paint is now Paint 3D.
I don't want to change the colors or do anything fancy. I just want to copy a picture from somewhere, copy and paste it into paint, and save it in documents. How is that done with Paint 3D? And for all I know, that's not how others do it, but that's the only way I know to copy a photo to be able to use it in a photo capsule.
Can anyone help? If so, tell me in "baby steps." Thanks.
@ Jean, Hi! I hope that 2018 is the BEST year Ever for you!
Not sure why you want to put it into paint initially.
Why not just right click the picture and save it in your documents or save it to your desktop where you can easily find it.
That's what I was going to say. When you see an image you want, just click the right-hand button on your mouse, select Save As, and a window will open where you can choose where to save the picture on your computer.
No need for Paint, unless you want to make changes to the picture.
Jean, I’m a Mac user, but I can tell you that Paint 3D came along with the Windows 10 Creators Update that you installed.
However, you can switch to 2D mode. Go to the Settings menu in Paint 3D and turn off “Show Perspective”. This puts Paint 3D in a 2D mode so that it will work much like the traditional paint.
Jean the first thing you should do is save the image to your Computer lets say into 'Documents' or 'Pictures' ( both located in 'Libraries'). Then open Paint program and then open your image in Paint by selecting 'File' > 'open'
I think what Jean is saying is that she doesn't have Paint anymore since she upgraded to Paint 3D.
I have both 2D and 3D. Windows 10. Now I'm afraid to open 3D in the fear that I'll lose the 2D.
Yes, Glenn, that's it, you understand me, lol.. I don't have Paint anymore, which was a surprise. My computer updated itself, and suddenly all I had was Paint 3D. Thanks for all the advice. I always save all my pictures to documents, I often use some of them a few times. Sallybea, I put them in paint because I often have to change the sizes.
Sorry I didn't get back to everyone after asking the question. A close friend passed away suddenly.
Thanks everyone! Take care of yourself Kenneth!

I notice some of you store your files on a flash drive. Is it really as easy as it sounds?

I'm thinking if we post all our Hubs on Google+, it would be a good way to "archive" them. Is this a good idea or a very bad one??

Is there a way to download my hubs?I was just thinking, usually I make sure I copy and paste my hubs into Word, or write them in word beforehand - either way, I make sure I save them. But recently I haven't been. I know with facebook you can download your profile, which is all your photos, photos...

Do we need to backup our Hubpages articles?In the event of a crash, is Hubpages backed up regularly? Or maybe your account was hacked, or even, good forbid, you did something stupid/accidentally and got yourself banned, would you lose access to all your hard work? I always backup my computer, but...
