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.
