Depending on which computer platform you got first or which one you were told to use for work, the debate on which is a better machine to use between a Mac and a PC is still a hot topic until today. However, it all boils down to your own personal preference despite the readily available feedback you can search for online.
With the debate of which is better, you will be actually surprised to know that the keywords “Microsoft Paint for Mac”, is a highly searched keyword in Google. This means that a lot of people still find the lowly MS paint application to be useful despite the dozens of better and more sophisticated editors available for use in the Mac OS platform.
How to use the Microsoft Paint in Mac
There are two simple solutions that you can take to solve this problem. The first involves using an emulator, while the second solution takes a look at an oddly similar Mac software.
- Download and use Parallels Desktop
Parallels Desktop is a virtual machine from which you can install and run your favorite Windows Operating system on your Mac computer. The virtual machine simulates the environment needed for a Windows operating to run. The Windows installation inside the Parallels Desktop virtual machine is just like a normal Windows installation where you can install and run all your favorite Windows applications. The MS paint application is part of the default software for a new Windows installation so you don’t have to install it.
- Use an MS Paint Clone for Mac
There are a lot of free software for MacOs out there. Generous developers have given fans of MS paint a choice when they want to migrate to Mac with a clone. One of the best free MS Paint clones for Mac is Paintbrush which has an open source license which means you can download and use it for free: https://paintbrush.sourceforge.io/.
