MSPaint IconThis guide is for people who removed or accidentally un-installed their Microsoft Paint on their Windows, but now want them back. I lost my MS Paint too two days ago, poking at the wrong place of my Add/Remove Windows Component and there goes my mspaint. It can only be re-installed with a Windows XP CD in my case, but I don’t have any with me.

If your Paint is gone from your computer too, do this to make sure the software really does not exist in your system, and not just the shortcut being deleted. Go to Start > Run > Type “mspaint” > OK. If your MSPaint starts, meaning it is still there, just that you have deleted the shortcut. Just create another shortcut and it will be fine.

I have a Windows XP CD
If you are 100% sure that MS Paint does not exist in your system anymore, there are three ways to get it back. The first way is to install it via your Windows XP CD. You can do so by going to

Control Panel > Add or Remove Programs > Add/Remove Windows Components > Double click on "Accessories and Utilities" > Double click on "Accessories" > Check "Paint" > OK > Next..

I DON’T have a Windows XP CD

The second way is grab a copy of the mspaint file from a relative, a friend or your pet dog’s computer. Copy mspaint.exe from their C:\WINDOWS\system32 to your flash drive, and paste it back to your computer’s “system32″ folder. Create a shortcut of it and place it anywhere you like and you are done.

Download mspaint.exe
Worse comes to worst, you don’t have a CD, nor a friend or relative with Windows XP, and your pet dog is using a MacBook, you are left with no choice but to download it.

mspaint icon [Download mspaint.exe] (mirror)

After you have downloaded it, move mspaint.exe to your C:\WINDOWS\system32 and Paint will be available again for your computer. To create a shortcut, just right click on the mspaint.exe icon, select “Create Shortcut“. When the shortcut is created, you can cut and paste it to anywhere you want for easy access later.

In case you lost all your Windows system applications, the following folder consist of most System Apps of Windows XP SP 1 (calculator, notepad etc.), and paint is also available in it.

Download Windows XP System Apps (mirror)

Happy painting :)

    Thank you so much for sharing the link to download mspaint for Windows XP. I have Windows 7 on my laptop and mspaint is so much harder to use on Windows 7. I saved the download onto a disk & am now able to use the Windows XP version on my laptop. The best part is that it did not ruin what my laptop already had installed on it. This makes creating my own blinkie blocks easier.

    Okay I found the paint thing, but dont know how to save the program to the system 32 thing. I dont know what I click on. I click on it and it does open but I cant just go to file save, becasue it will save the picture which is blank I dont know how to save the file. Please help. asap

    I actually need help with more details on what to do. I opened file and see mspaint. Click o it and it opens mspaint. Then. I dont know if im supposed to click on the mspaint folder and it says something about extracting it. I dont know what im doing. So I actually need more help with finding out how to save it to my system32 folder. I thought I did it but its not existing still when I go to run; then mspaint it shows that it still doesnt exist in the computer’s memory. so If I could just get a better detailed description. Maybe there is something that I am not doing before saving the file where I forgot.

    was very easy to figure out, if you still don’t know a way to save it to your computer here’s a way how!
    1. when the download popup comes up, push save.
    2. save it to documents.
    3. go to start, my documents.
    4. drag the MSPAINT icon onto your background with all your other icons.
    5. right click, and push rename.
    6. rename it “paint” so next time you know what it is!
    :)

    the same time paint dissappeared, so did all the system games, like solitare and free cell. notepad and the calculator are still in “accessories” but all the games and paint left, i really needed paint back, but would you, Vincent, know what to do about the games? i miss playing spider solitare and pin ball!

    I hope this works. I will try it to see. Thanks for your info. Rita

    In the Systems Apps. There is no Fax either and this is normally on the winxp cd. I could not get the winxp cd to install the Paint or the Fax as it asked if this was the Microsoft Home Edition of Winxp and it was. I did not use my laptop winxp cd for this and probably should have.

    Check this website out:

    A pop up box will appear. First click save and select the place you want to save it.

    Then click run, after it downloads, and then MS paint will be installed to your computer.

    Happy painting!

    I downloaded this because I didn’t like the Windows 7 version of MS paint.

    When I go to save a file, it says that it cannot save because the save was interrupted.

    Sometimes when I save something, there’s a completely blank document saved. I can’t trash it because apparantly, the file doesn’t even exist.

    I went through all sorts of hell changing properties and ownership of files and stuff to get Old Paint working on Windows 7, and now this.

    Any help is appreciated.

    Yes. There is a free link which I have uploaded and it includes paint and another system file for paint. It is zipped so extract the two files in it. Its size is 2.62 MB. Sadly, it is of Windows 7 and I am not sure if you would like it, but it is fine. Heres the link: http://uploading.com/files/5d2c3f98/MS%2BPaint.zip/. Sorry, because you have to wait for a minute.

    Thanks for the tip Vincent! My old hard drive crash. I was able to find mspaint.exe on my backup hard drive. I had to click on properties of the icon and select Windows 98/ME for compatibilty.

    Although, I’m using Windows XP, I got it to work! If you leave the box uncheck it might not work.

    Now, I won’t have to click run the program every time I use the software. Thanks.

    My comp is seven years old and I just randomly keep losing data. I have taught myself Html, Css, Css3, and some Javascript. (I am only 14 years old). I am a web designer. You should also make it so that people that are (10 years old) can’t use curse words. It’s not good for them and they will end up in jail. I am also commenting on this site because like I said some data just disapears and I lost my Microsoft Paint. So thank-you for this. If you would like a website made you can get me at xat.com/WellsFargo. Thank-you, Robby.

    It’s apparent that the majority of people attracted to this site are inbred low life’s. Albeit there is a minor portion that are adult yet foolish to download anything from this site. It’s unsecured and without any doubt in my mind will sell any information that can gain about you for a profit. Thus they give free downloads. Also I noticed that a portion of illiterate idiots who can’t spell are also attracted to this site. I came in because I thought you had something of worth then soon enough I found out that you had nothing of worth. Pretty much like this site. Worthless. To further my point of this site being pointless, this box you have to click to prove you’re human? That’s a joke, since any program is capable of checking the box which makes the clicking pointless. But, it’s been proven time and time again that sites like this are a dime a dozen and the creators and owner(s) of it are as feckless and unintelligent as the day is long.

    I just got a new computer. and I had been so used to using the form of MS Paint on Windows XP…

    Well, my new computer has Windows 7 and I just couldn’t get used to using it, so I’m so thankful that you put this up.

  337. my mom had Paint when my computer was hers, somehow it was gone when she gave it to me, I REALLY missed that paint, worst of all, I couldn’t even do anything on my WMM (Windows Movie Maker), all I was doing was making videos of text and pictures other people made, that’s why I downloaded this! :D

  339. Thank you for your support in finding “mspaint”. It was hiden in my files someplace. I only had to do, the very first step that you suggested. To type into “run” the word “mspaint” and press “OK”, it worked! Now I wonder, why was it hidden from me?
    Thank you again,
    JCS.

    Well, same thing happened to me, as all Windows applications disappeared (wordpad, ms paint, windows media player, volume, etc), however, I have SP2 installed on laptop, but there’s SP1 windows on CD, is that even acceptable to be used for restoring those applications?
