How to Change the Eraser Size in Paint on a Laptop


Paint, the basic no-frills Microsoft graphics software, is included with all Windows operating systems. If your laptop has Windows, you've got Paint. Within Paint, you can draw, sketch, type and of course, paint. When you find an error in your electronic artwork or want to perform a touch-up, Paint's "Eraser" tool is ready to help. Even though Paint's functionality dwindles when compared to other graphics programs, it offers multiple levels of erasing for laptop digital designers.

  • Open Paint. If erasing an existing Paint document, click the Paint button, select "Open," browse to the picture and double-click it, which opens it on the Paint screen.

  • Click the "Eraser" tool located in the "Tools" section of the ribbon.

  • Click the "Size" button in the middle of the ribbon. A four-line fly-down menu appears below the button, with the thinnest line at the top and the thickest line at the bottom. Note the highlight around the line indicating the current eraser size.

  • Click the corresponding line in the drop-down menu -- other than the highlighted one -- to change the eraser to the desired size. Make any changes to the image as desired.

Tips & Warnings

  • The process for changing the eraser head does not differ whether you are using a laptop or a personal computer.
