To crop:

  • Press  "Select" (in the bar across the top)
  • Use the mouse to select the area you want to crop
  • Press crop

To save:

  • Press the little blue box (with the down arrow) at the top left in Paint program
  • Select "Save" to save to the current picture
  • Select "Save as" to save to a new picture

Until you get the hang of cropping, I suggest saving to a new picture instead of your current picture.
