Hello Selwyn - welcome to the forum.


When the line tool is active you can find options for the tool in the Tool Bar (Tool Defaults is where you set the default style i.e. when Paint.NET opens that style will be selected).


There are three main styles, Start Cap, line Style and End Cap.  These are drop down lists where you select a style by clicking on it.  Find them between the Brush Width and Fill Style.


Alternatively, cycle through the styles with the comma, full stop and slash keys on your keyboard (hint: draw a line first then play with these options before committing the line to the canvas - i.e. when the control nubs are still visible).
