Creating Tutorial: Changing the tint of a color on Paint

Hello everyone! I’m here to help show you how to change the color tint on the application Paint.
The Paint application icon should look like the following picture for those of you who are not familiar.
Paint1

Open the Paint application and it should look like the following picture.
Paint2

At the upper tool bar, on the right of all of the colors, you will see the words “Edit colors.”
Paint3

Click on that and a small window should appear.
Paint4

On the right, there is a vertical column with an arrow at the bottom.
Paint5

Since that arrow starts off on the bottom of the color column, it will be the color’s darkest form (hence the “Color|Solid” box).
Paint6

In order to change the color tint, you move the arrow to the desired color tint then click the OK button.
Paint7

Once you’ve clicked OK, you will be able to use your color. You can see your color at the top tool bar.
Paint8

Congratulations! You now know how to change the tint of any color you want on Paint. Have fun creating!
