How do I make the eraser larger on WINDOWS 7 MS paint?

Hi! Another technical problem. I've been getting into paint to try doing some manga on it and I've run into a problem. I can't make the eraser larger. I've worked with the previous paints but none of those hotkeys work. I looked it up on the internet and it said to use fn+ctrl+? but it didn't make any difference. Remember this is windows 7!

Any help?

For large areas, use the free-form select tool and then clear the selection. The regular sized eraser will take care of the final touch-up.

That's the problem. Say I only want to erase one colour. I can't use teh colour replacement with the free-form tool. Darn you paint...

You can also use Windows key + Ctrl + "+" from Numpad for increasing the Eraser size and Windows key + Ctrl + "-" from Numpad for decreasing the Eraser size. I tried it on Windows 10, hope it also works for Windows 7.

Use On-Screen Keyboard who neither have alternate keys in their keyboards nor Numpad.

Steps:-
1. Search keyboard in Start Menu.
2. Open it.
3. Enable the Numpad by pressing NumLock Key.
4. Open paint and select rubber.
5. Now press (ctrl key) + (+ key from numpad); size will increase. Number of time you press both the keys, number of times the size of the rubber will increase.

Note:- Those who dont have numpad enabled in On-Screen Keyboard, enable it from settings of On-Screen Keyboard.

:) :D :P

It's not legal to activate your Windows 10 Pro Product Key without a product key. It is not as difficult as you image to solve this problem. Why not just buy a genuine product from theMicrosoft official site or its partner site http://www.Office2013keysale.com/ . Same product and lower price with more effective service and support. This is my personal experience and hope this also can help you.

I've just had the opportunity to do this on a Dell Laptop using Windows 7 x64 and Paint.

To increase the size of the eraser, press FN-CTRL-+ (keypad +, not keyboard +).

The FN key tells the keyboard that you wish to use the alternate keys (in this case keypad). I have not tested this on a full sized keyboard, but I assume that ctrl-+ will work when the + key is located on the keypad instead of the +/= key on the keyboard.

control(ctrl) button plus + (plus) for large - for small

Use a (real) pen/pencil & eraser instead.

Select eraser and then select the size pull down. Even at it's biggest it isn't very big
if ur on a laptop take two fingers together and slowly drag them apart on the trackpad

In the old version there was ctrl +-, but I don't think the 7 version has that. :(
