*    Working with Paint

 

Paint is used for drawing and colouring. On the left hand side of the screen you see several icons in a rectangular box, called the Toolbox. Take the mouse pointer to the Pencil tool and click it. Using this Pencil you can draw whatever you want to draw in the blank space on the screen. As you draw keep the left button pressed. To make your picture colourful, you can select the desired colour from the colour palette and select the Fill with Color icon by clicking it. Click to fill the picture with the selected colour. If you wish to move a window around or to push it a little to the right, take the mouse pointer to the Title Bar, drag it (while keeping the left button pressed) and drop the window to a desired place.    

 

*        To save what you have drawn:

  • Click the File menu. It would pull down all the commands that it has. Select Save. A Dialog Box will appear.
  • Give a name to your file and click Save. A file name is a name that you give to a file, plus a three-letter extension. A (.) separates the name and its extension. The extension tells us what kind of file it is. For example, a Paint file has an extension .bmp. The file name then appears on the Title Bar of the window.  

 

*       Closing Paint

To close down Paint you can select File menu and select Close or click the close icon on the Title Bar. This will take you back to the Desktop.
