Click on the Start Button, move the mouse up to the Programs Folder. Then move the mouse up to the Accessories Folder. Mouse over to the Paint icon, and click on it. Paint will then launch, opened to a new (blank) picture.
The Paint window will look like this:
Now let's start learning about Microsoft Paint!
Launch Microsoft Paint:

You will want to familiarize yourself with the look and layout of this window, as it is very similar to other paint/image manipulation programs such as Adobe Photoshop. Learning the basic features of Paint will make it easier for you to learn other, more complex programs that much more easily.
Click here to proceed to The Tools. 
First, let’s maximize the Paint window by clicking the rectangular button to the left of the X button on the right side of the Paint window’sTitle Bar. The Paint window should now fill out the entire screen. (If you’re very new to using Windows, click on the Title Bar link to learn more about how the Title Bar works.)
You don’t really use the Title Bar for anything, but it’s good to know about it. Now that you do, you should be ready to learn about using the tools of Paint.

Microsoft Paint
At the right side of the tool bar, you’ll see three buttons: From left to right, they are:Minimize, Maximize/Restore, andClose. If you click onMinimize, the window will shrink down and disappear, leaving only the window tab on the task bar (usually located the very bottom of the screen) to let you know that the window is still open. Click tab to bring the window back to its previous size.Maximize/ Restorewill switch the window between taking up the full size of the screen and some smaller portion of it. WhenRestored, you can re-size the window by clicking along the edge of the window and dragging it
To the right of the title bar, you’ll see some text. The first bit of text is the name of the file that is currently open in this program. Since we’ve just launched Paint, we see a new (blank) document, which is named "untitled" by default. The next bit of text tells us again that this window is a Paint window, just like the Icon did. It’s redundant, but redundancy is common to the Windows interface.
Understanding how to read the title bar is a basic skill in Windows. The Title Bar is indicated by the red circle in the illustration at left. The Icon (at far left) gives you a clue as to what program the window belongs to. In this case, the Icon shows that the window belongs to Microsoft Paint.

to the desired size. You can also move the window about by clicking and holding the Title Bar and dragging the mouse around. WhenMaximized, the window takes up the entire screen and can’t be moved around or re-sized. Clicking on theClosebutton will shut the program down completely.

The Tools 
Microsoft Paint has an assortment of painting Tools that you can use for drawing shapes and applying color to areas of your image in various ways. You switch between tools by clicking on the appropriate Icon on the Toolbar, which is located on the left side of the Paint window. The Toolbar looks like this:
:1700:6/202601 2)f /008l tm o(1oot/h.slPSM/tniap:tthlkw.ww//gro.lpdwsessalc/The Tools
:011067:/2026 00
If this is your first time visiting this page, I suggest that you start out with learning about the Pencil Tool, and then following the links in order from there.
Most of the Tools are used to apply color in some way to a portion of the image. In order to use these tools, you'll first want to make sure that you have selected the correct color in theColor Palette.
In addition to the various Tools that Paint places at your disposal, you’ll also have a number of useful commands that can be accessed through the Menus.     
The fifth row has theAirbrushtool and theText toolIcons.
The bottom portion of the Toolbar changes when you select a tool to reveal additional options or settings for that tool.
The Eighth row has theOval Drawing Tooland theRounded Rectangle Drawing Tool. Icons.
The seventh row has theRectangle Drawing tooland thePolygon Drawing toolIcons.
The sixth row has theLine tooland theCurve toolIcons.

These tools are used to select portions of the image you’re working with. These selections can then be moved around, copied, or edited without affecting the rest of the image.
To use the Rectangle Select tool: 
You will notice that the freeform shape that you had been drawing has just mysteriously turned into a rectangle! What gives? Actually, your freeform shape is still preserved; the selection, however, is outlined in a rectangular-shaped guide box. The freeform selection is bounded within this box. If you move the selected portion of the image around, you’ll notice that it still retains the freeform shape that you drew. This may confuse you at first, but you’ll get used to it before long.
1. Click on the Freeform Select tool Icon. 2. With the left button, click on your image wherever you want to begin the selection. Drag the mouse around to create the outline of the freeform shape of your selection. Be careful! The mouse is tricky to use. It may help to zoom in using theMagnifying Glasstool. Zoom in close so you can see what you’re working with more clearly, and to control the mouse with better precision. 3. When you finish outlining your freeform selection shape, release the mouse button.
To use the Freeform Select tool: 
Copy or Cut and Paste:To copy the selection, press Ctrl-C. To cut the selection from the image, press Ctrl-X. After Copying or Cutting, you can Paste the selection by pressing Ctrl-V. By Pasting multiple times, you can achieve a mosaic or collage-like effect.
Things you can do with the selected area:
The Rectangular selection will also have a rectangular shaped guide box around it.
1. Click on the Rectangle Select tool Icon. 2. With the left button, click and hold the button to begin your selection. Where you click will become one of the corners of the rectangular selection area. 3. Drag the mouse diagonally to where you want the opposite corner of the rectangular area to be. 4. Release the mouse button.

Move:Left-click anywhere inside the guidebox and hold down the button to "pick up" the selection, and then drag the mouse to move the selection to another area of the image. It will "float" over the rest of the image, allowing you to position it wherever you want it to be. Release the mouse button to "let go" of the selection.
De-selecting the area:To de-select the area, either activate a different tool by clicking on it in the tool bar, or make a new selection. You can’t have more than one selection active at a time. Once the selection is de-selected, it becomes part of the image again, and will cover over whatever it may have been laying over.
Example: Using selections to combine two separate images.This exampleuses selections in several ways to achieve interesting results. This page uses a lot of graphics to show step-by-step the procedures used in using the Selection Tools, so I've set it up as a separate page, to decrease the amount of time it takes to download.

Tip: If you hold down the Shift key as you drag your selection around, it will paste multiple copies of the image, creating a sort of blurred effect.
"One of the things I use transparent copying for is to create a 50% raster. It takes some patience but starting in zoom helps and it works like this: 1. Draw a 45 degree line (using shift with line tool)
Apply Effects:You can apply any of the effects from theImage Menudirectly to the active selection rather than to the whole image.
Stretch:The guide box around your selection can be re-sized. You can resize by clicking on the square-shaped tabs located at the corners and the middle sections of the guide box, holding the mouse button down, and then dragging the mouse to change the size of the selection. Release the mouse button when the selection is the size you want it to be. You can make it bigger or smaller, and achieve a distorted effect by "squashing" or "stretching" the selection to make it either wider/narrower or taller/shorter than its original proportions.
After you've finished looking at the example, please procede to learn about the
"You are also missing the Ctrl-drag feature in selection tool description, which I think is quite significant feature. If you hold down ctrl when you begin to move a selection, it will create an instant copy which you can then position. This is especially useful with the transparent selection mode, you know, those two buttons in the selection mode you don't talk about.
Online reader, Matti Nikki, submitted some additional information:

"I mentioned the 50% raster above, there's a very nice use for it in the transparent copying, requiring two steps. The first step is to create a purple-on-white 50% raster using the technique I've described above. Once you have the raster made, use transparent copying to put the raster on top of another image, and you should end up with an image that has every other pixel purple. After this, choose purple as your background color and keep the transparent mode when you copy it elsewhere. If you followed the steps properly, you should have image with a fake 50% transparency, which you can place on top of another image. For extra smoothness, do this with images that have been scaled up 200% and then scale them down afterwards, and it will no longer be a fake raster, MS Paint will merge the pixels.
"Regarding rasters, the black&white mode you can select in the image->attributes menu is perfect for creating transparency masks for the above technique."
2. Copy the line right next to itself, leaving one pixel gap 3. Select both lines and copy, repeat You should end up with a raster that has every other pixel white and every other something else.
"Transparent copies are also superior to freeform selection in some cases, in your selection tool example you could've painted the edge pixels with background color before moving it to the new picture. This way you could've avoided the cruft near the edges and made it look like a better fit.
