Fresh Paint is primarily an Art Package not specifically an image editing tool.

Normally we would expect to use Paint to past the Screen grab into and then save that as a JPG file. Then if you really want to load it into Fresh Paint you can load the file in using the Photo option.

Alternatively instead of using Prt Scrn use the Snipping Tool to select the area you want and that goes straight to the save file option.

The reason that I want to paste into Fresh Paint is that I don't have Paint on my computer. MS say that if I have not got it, I should use FP instead.

Paint is integrated into Windows and cannot be removed by normal methods, with Windows 10 even the Add Remove programs & features lack the Windows Accessories option to remove it.

Run %windir%\system32\mspaint.exe

This will confirm if the program itself is still on the computer.

Fresh Paint is not an appropriate alternative as you cannot paste items from the clipboard.

If you cannot repair your Paint installation 3rd party Gimp would be a better image editing tool which has the Paste option from Clipboard.
