MS Paint wins last minute, death sentence reprieve

By

An incredible outpouring of support for MS Paint that was to be deprecated from future Windows 10 versions has resulted in it receiving a last-minute "Presidential" pardon – it will be available from the Windows Store for some time to come.

The deprecation and removal of some legacy code and apps from the Windows 10 Creators Fall Update drew howls of protest for the good old reliable Paint program.

Microsoft said in a blog post it had seen an incredible outpouring of support and nostalgia around MS Paint.

“If there’s anything we learned, it’s that after 32 years, MS Paint has a lot of fans. It’s been amazing to see so much love for our trusty old app. Amidst today’s commentary around MS Paint we wanted to take this opportunity to set the record straight, clear up some confusion and share some good news,” Megan Sanders, general manager, 3D for Everyone Initiative, Windows Experiences, said.

MS Paint is here to stay, it will just have a new home soon, in the Windows Store, where it will be available free.

Paint 3D — the new app for creativity, also available free with the Windows 10 Creators Update — will continue to get new feature updates. In addition to the new 3D capabilities, many of the MS Paint features people know and love like photo editing, line and curve tools, and 2D creation are in Paint 3D.

So, thanks for all the MS Paint love, keep the feedback coming via the Paint 3D app, and keep creating!
