How to change default save as type in ms paint?

The default save as type in Ms Paint is .bmp. But i used to save it as .jpg. So every time i change the file ext while saving a file. I need to change the default save as type to .jpg So that i can save time.

Any help would be appreciable.

Actually, that isn't the only fix nor is it the best option in my opinion.
Try this:
Open PAINT, then click the BLUE drop down box in the top left hand corner of the screen (this is the box that gives the drop down options for saving a file), now click SAVE AS and a selection of save as formats including JPEG will appear to the right, move your cursor over the JPEG option and RIGHT CLICK (not left click), three options will be presented, click (select) the top option which says ADD TO QUICK ACCESS FOLDER.
This creates a new ICON at the top of the paint screen next to the DO and UNDO arrows (icons).
Now in future when you want to save anything as JPEG simply click this new icon (rather than the blue drop down box) and the normal save screen will open with JPEG as the DEFAULT.
Enjoy :)
