Key Points

  • The Windows Vista operating system comes with Paint, a program you can use to create and edit graphics, and WordPad, a program you can use to create and format documents.

  • Using Paint, you can save graphics in a variety of formats that are ideal for different uses. You can save an edited graphic in its original format or in an alternate format of your choice.

  • Documents created in WordPad are not limited to plain text: You can format the font, size, and color of characters; format paragraphs; and insert graphics. You can save WordPad documents as Text or Rich Text Format files.

  • When printing graphics from Paint or documents from WordPad, you have the same print options as you do in other Windows-based programs.
