-Save Save a picture to the virtual “picturebook” One-click save: No file browser dialogs or filename prompts are used If saving an opened picture, choose to save over it (like “Save” in desktop programs), or save a new picture (like “Save As”)
-Open Open a previous drawing by selecting its thumbnail in a virtual “picturebook” Delete previously-saved pictures

-Starts Various coloring-book-style images included Photographic scenes included, with foreground and background elements that you draw in between
-Print Print pictures on a printer
Run Tux Paint in full-screen mode, or have it “grab” the mouse pointer, to prevent children from accidentally accessing other programs or files on the desktop. Sound effects can be disabled.
The Print and Quit options can be disabled. Alternatively, the Print option can be limited to allow only one print every n minutes.
Tux Paint cannot be launched more than once every 30 seconds, to prevent multiple copies from being run accidentally, due to over-eager mouse clicking.
The directory/folder where Tux Paint saves files may be changed. This can be used to save pictures in a student’s home directory on a network drive or shared drive, rather than locally on one particular workstation.
Stamps, starters and brushes are stored using popular open formats (PNG, SVG, Ogg Vorbis, etc.) allowing parents and teachers to create their own content for use at home or in the classroom — even using completely free tools.
The “Tux Paint Configuration program allows parents, teachers, and school technicians to alter Tux Paint’s behavior using a simple, easy-to-use graphical interface. (It’s separate from Tux Paint, to prevent children from changing things.) … and much more!”
