The Paint window contains several elements similar to the document windows in

Home tab on the Ribbon, the Paint button, the Tools group, the Colors group, and the
status bar, as shown in Figure 5-16.
Drawing area — The drawing area is where the image is displayed.

to access functions such as Open, Save, and Print that were on the File menu in earlier
versions of Windows.
