Hi all I cant find Paint in programs any ideas,know I had it before, I have 2 copies of OS system ME can I install it from the other disc?

Go into settings > control panel > add/remove programs. Can't remember what the next step is for ME but you should be able to install it from there. You will need your OS disc.

If you're really desperate go to START>SEARCH>ALL FILES AND FOLDERS and type in mspaint and it'll find it for you. Open containing folder, right click on the mspaint.exe file and and select SEND TO and select DESKTOP (CREATE SHORTCUT). It'll then be on your desktop & will be easily found the next time you want to use it.

You could try find files and put in the box paint if it finds paint.exe right click and drag to start button and up to the folder that it should be in and create a shortcut

On WinME you won't find Paint in Add/Remove.

You'll find Paint in the Accessories folder on your C drive.

With ME installed correctly to run Paint go to Start>Programs>Accessories.

Come back if you're still in trouble.

Have you gon to find files from start/find if its on the disc it will find it just put paint in the box at the top and make sure it checks C:\ if its on the disc you can just right click on paint.exe and drag it to the start button and it will create a shortcut on start

If you've lost it then normally you can goto add\remove software>setup>tick the box next to paint and apply.
