Microsoft To Remove Paint In New Update, After 32 Years

Microsoft’s next Windows 10 update, called the Autumn (or Fall in the US) Creators Update, will bring a variety of new features. However, your long-standing favourite software, Microsoft Paint, is going off.

Paint was introduced on the Windows 1.0 in 1985, and would be one of the first graphics editors used by many and became a core part of Windows. Starting life as a 1-bit monochrome licensed version of ZSoft’s PC Paintbrush, it wasn’t until Windows 98 that Paint could save in JPEG.

With the Windows 10 Creators Update, released in April, Microsoft introduced the new Paint 3D, which is installed alongside traditional Paint and features 3D image making tools as well as some basic 2D image editing. Yet, it is not an update to original Paint.

Now Microsoft has announced that, alongside Outlook Express, Reader app and Reading list, Microsoft Paint has been hinted to be yanked off, having been added to the “features that are removed or deprecated in Windows 10 Fall Creators Update” list.

Microsoft Paint’s ticket has been called and now it’s only a matter of time before it is removed.

When Microsoft Paint will officially be removed from Windows has yet to be confirmed, while a precise date for the release of the Windows 10 Autumn Creators Update is equally up in the air.
