More useful Yeti programs.
While running this program gives XP/Vista Paint hotkeys for the tools (pencil, brush, eraser, etc). Doesn't work with 7 Paint because forget that.
Readme should help, and includes the list of what key is what:
[+] spoiler
1. Run PaintHotkeys.exe
2. That's it :Q

Probably won't work with Windows 7 Paint, should work with Vista, definitely works with XP.
After the first run it'll make an ini file, you can edit the hotkeys in there. Delete the ini file to restore the defaults.
There's some weirdness with switching off the magnfying glass while it's over the canvas, it doesn't damage anything though.

MS Paint Hotkey Defaults:
N Free-Form
M Selection
E Eraser
G Fill

I Eyedropper
Z Magnifier
P Pencil
B Brush

A AirBrush
T Text
L Line
C Curve

R Rectangle
U Polygon
Y Ellipse
F Rounded Rectangle

OMG YES

I don't have to move my mouse all over the place just to select things!

(gosh, that sounds so lazy, but it really does speed things up a bit, if only by a few seconds each time; of course, all those savings add up)

...7Paint is better than Vista & XP. People are just too lazy to get used to the new layout.
