'File Not Found' Save Error

Go to solution Solved by shadows,

I update to 5.0 today. Now when I go to save an image created from scratch in the program, I receive an error message: "File not found. Check the file name and try again."


I've tried "Save" and "Save As", different formats, different names, and different destination folders. The error is the same each time, and it makes no sense.

It's a standard Microsoft Windows pop-up message that says what I put in quotes.


Anyway, I've found the problem. I needed to add Paint.net to the allowed apps list for Microsoft Defender's controlled folder access.


May this thread help someone in the future.

Hi, i'm having the same error. I use save as an when select the folder i want  it says than there is no file named x.pdn.

I have seen that this bug appears only en some folders, such as personal folder as My Images, and when there ara many subfolder levels in a secondary HD.

But, i have tried save at my d:\Download folder and it runs. So then i have to move the files.

Hope you could resolve it


I'm using windwos 11 and paint .net 5
