How do I change Windows 7 Paint default print orientation from landscape to portrait ?

Paint v6 under Vista has the default/fixed orientation set as Portrait
 
Paint v6.1 under win7 has the default/fixed orientation set as Landscape
 
In both it can be manually changed on a file by file basis, but when shut down reverts to its std setting

 I would like to not be obliged to change it every time I use Paint.
 
Thanks

bakfaloni--On the Home tab, use "Rotate".  However, whether an image initially shows as Portrait or Landscape depends on the image file itself.

However, I do not think you can change the default orientation

It does not seem possible to change the orientation of the Paint window.  But the orientation of the image once in the Paint window can be changed.
