  • After 32 Years Microsoft Is Killing Off Paint For Good

The Windows 10 Creators Update released in April introduced the new Paint 3D.

It's good to know that Microsoft listened to its users by not killing the 32-year-old Windows program.

Microsoft has responded to an outpouring of online grief over the reported phasing out of its app Paint from future versions of Windows, saying the app will still be available - but on the Windows Store.

However, Microsoft tweeted a few hours back that MS Paint will remain after all.

The death of the Paint will be a big blow, especially for smalls kids who used to learn drawing with MS Paint for so many years. "It has been incredible to see so much love for our trusty old app", it said.

Microsoft signaled an about-face in a blog post Monday night by Megan Saunders, a general manager within the Windows Experiences group.

Microsoft has chose to do a total make-over of its operating system for computers, and has been working on it since the past 2 years.

Microsoft had previously classified the Paint app as "deprecated" within the upcoming Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, meaning Microsoft would officially cease development on it, and it could be removed from the OS either with the release of the FCU or in the future. As a result, Microsoft announced today that MS Paint is set to become a free app on the Windows Store.

"So, thanks for all the MS Paint love, keep the feedback coming via the Paint 3D app, and keep creating!". Those that want to download the app will be able to do so for free.

Ending updates to certain tools is an effective way to get users to upgrade, funneling users into current product offerings. Paint may be standard when it comes to quick, simple sketches, but it has been far outpaced by other options.

Last year Microsoft a new version of the program called Paint 3D that allows for the creation of 3D images.
