    Win98 and (shudder) Paint!

    Hello, Yeah I know there are lots of other image manipulation programs out there and I use some of them but it's just easier to do something quick and dirty with Paint. Recently though, the option to save a file as a JPEG no longer appears as an option in the "Save as Type" panel of the Save As screen. I would REALLY like to get it back. Help please. Thanks. John.

    What file types are available in Paint seems to be controlled by a complicated combination of the Operating System and what application software has been installed. See the thread starting at <post#=198256>post 198256</post#> for a discussion of this; you'll also find some links to KnowledgeBase articles about this problem.

    I have used Lonnie's (ilona53) link MANY times on various computers -- and I highly recommend it:

    MS Paint Fix

    IMHO, the MSKB and most other places are not as good as the above link for this specific issue.

    John--I just posted this in Pix--will put how here so you won't have to wade through long thread.

    There are two quick ways. The quickest is to just follow the steps KB18632: Invalid Page Fault Starting Word or Paint at the bottom of this KB. This will fix Paint and you will again have the .jpeg option.

    The second way may take an extra couple minutes of <img src=/S/time.gif border=0 alt=time width=23 height=39>--I just like the markup symbol--
    Go to Ctrl Panel>Add/Remove Windows Components, Scroll to Accessories and Put a Check Mark in It>Highlight It>Click Add--you'll be prompted to put in your 98 CD Rom and it'll grab Paint from it and restore your files. <A target="_blank" HREF="http://www.computerhope.com/software/mspaint.htm">
    Information about MS Paint</A>

    A third way might be to put in your 98 CD and copy Paint from the Windows Explorer interface.

    Lonnie's link is specific and pinpoints what you need--mine gives people back Paint who might have lost it or uninstalled some or all of their Accessories. I am in debt to Lonnie for going after a number of nice links on Paint for me. I put up a shot of adding Accessories from the Add/Remove Windows Components:

    <font color=blue>How can I install / uninstall mspaint?</font color=blue>

    Click Start / Settings / Control Panel
    Double click Add Remove Programs
    Click the Windows Setup Tab
    Double click the Accessories icon and
    check or uncheck paint depending upon if you want to install / uninstall mspaint.
    When prompted for a diskette insert your Windows CD or try point to c:windowsoptionscabs (please keep in mind however that this directory may not exist on your computer). If this is the case you will
