Download Microsoft Paint (MS) Alternative for Windows XP/Vista


I have spent few hours over the internet trying to search for Microsoft Paint Download but there’s no site that provides download links (Not even Microsoft official website) So instead of looking for MS, I found another alternative which has similar features as the Paint & it can be used on both Windows XP & Vista – Paint.NET

What you need to know before you download Paint.NET

Maybe you accidentally deleted the shortcut, not the actual software. Check by searching for paint.exe. If Search locates it, right-click the file, click Create Shortcut, then drag the shortcut to where you want it to appeared (e.g. : Desktop)

If you confirmed you have deleted the folders, you may continue with the MS alternative download
