You can right click on a picture and choose "open with" and then click choose another app. If you can't see the old paint in there, scroll down and click "more apps" if you still can't see then scroll down and select "look for another app on this PC" then you can locate the .exe file for the old paint. remember to click "always use this app to open ### files"
Hope this helps
Many thanx for that tip, Kristian: I was all gung ho and tried it. Problem is, I searched my computer: there is no "exe," only the setup icon on the desktop, and of course the actual startup icon itself. Nothing came up as that particular "paint" when I went thru your process, nor when I searched all thru my laptop . (I got the paint download thru MajorGeeks, and they just directly put the setup thingy on your desktop, they don't put it anywhere "deeper" into the computer belly.)
