    This is super weird but I am not able to find MS Paint since today morning.


    • Not seeing Paint in Windows Search or under accessories (Start Menu).


    • 'mspaint' in Windows Run doesn't work


    • Paint option has also been removed from context menu.


    • c:> mspaint in Command Prompt does nothing.

    How is this even possible? I had installed KB4023057 yesterday and Paint was working, but it suddenly disappeared after I started my PC today morning.

  2. Custom context menu entries

    So, just throwing this out there, in case somone knows.

    I have added a custom context menu entry for the program rightload, since by default the menu is broken in vistax64.

    It works pefect with single files, but when I select mutiple files and try to open, I get mutiple instances of the program (which makes sense), here is my entry:

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Rightload\Rightload.exe --server=1 --autostart %1

    So the %1 passes the filename to the program, and when I select multiple files it is just opening multiple instances of rightload each with a different file.

    What I'd like to do is be able to pass a list of the files selected to the program. Since I know it is capable of uploading multiple files from the context menu, all in one instance.

    So, is there something I can pass besides %1 that will do this? I have looked around and can't seem to find an answer anywhere... *Frown Microsoft Paint disappeared (I am unable to open it via context menu, search, Start Menu,... :(
