- Kiddy Paint :: I use Windows 7 or Vista, why can I not find my saved pictures in the Kiddy Paint folder?
If you are using Windows 7 or Vista then it is very important that you DO NOT create a folder for Kiddy Paint in the 'program files' folder on your computer. As a security measure Windows 7 and Vista do not allow data files to be saved to this folder. As Kiddy Paint saves pictures to the folder where the application resides you should place the app in a folder in another location on your hard drive, preferably your documents folder or in the root of the hard drive.
