Keeps Creating Paint.net Folder on Desktop - Windows 10

Recommended Posts

Every time I use Paint.Net on a Windows 10 PC, it creates a folder on the desktop called "Paint.Net". This didn't happen until a few updates ago. Is there a way to turn this off? I keep a clean desktop and I do not understand the need for this to be created every time I run the application.

I've never heard of that happening before.


So, if you open Paint.NET and immediately close it, the new folder appears on your desktop?


Is there anything inside the folder?


It's just an empty folder. I uninstalled Paint.Net, completely cleaned it from the registry, reinstalled and it still does this.
