As you might have observed by now, the Edit with Paint 3D context menu option appears only when you right click on a picture file. In other words, the option appears when you right-click on JPEG, BMP, PNG, GIF, TIF, and TIFF image file types.
The Edit with Paint 3D option is added by an app called Paint 3D app. If you don’t know, the Paint 3D app is introduced with Creators Update for Windows 10. Although the Paint 3D is an alternative and update to the classic Paint program, the classic Paint program continues to be the part of Windows 10.
