    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.

      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.

          I think my Nikon software requires me to save in another program like paint.  PITA.

    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' smile

      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!
