After closing paint the last used settings went back to default. I want them to be saved. Like the selected Brush-Tool, Color, Line-strength, etc.

Either after every usage or I define one I use most. Maybe through the registry or by start parameters?

Take a look at some of the better free paint programs out there (eg Paint.Net and others). – Brad Patton Feb 12 '13 at 16:25
Paint.NET has the same problem. – mgutt Jan 24 '15 at 17:02

Paint is a pretty basic program, after searching the registry, the properties and and finding no guide on shell parameters, I'm reasonably sure this isn't supported.

MS Paint does not support saving your preferences across sessions. The only things that are preserved across sessions are your last canvas size and the state of the window (size, location, maximised state).
