A computer question please :/ I am away to Florida for a while and will be getting a new lap top whilst there. Of course, about 5 mins after getting it, I will want to download Paint.net. Can I save my Effects and File types from my present computer, onto a memory chip, and then load them onto the newly downloaded PDN? It would save a lot of time having to start with all the plug-ins from afresh. Thanks in advance ... and any other time-saving tips will be much appreciated :lol:.

Yes you can. Think of it in these terms, you're just getting them from a different download source (even though you're not actually downloading). The various plugins aren't really "installed" in the traditional sense. You simply download a zip file and copy the dll file into the appropriate folder (the same thing you will be doing with a USB stick).

Thanks so much Jim :smile: . You also helped me today in another, older thread (via search) ...... I couldn't figure out where my customs brushes folder was in Win7 ...... now I know - thanks again!
