Bye Bye MS Paint. Microsoft will be killing Paint after 32 Years


The new upcoming update of Windows 10 called Fall Creators Update will be bringing a set of new features.

But on the other hand, some of the features will not be there.

One of the feature which will be gone is: Microsoft Paint.

History of Paint

Paint was first released with the very first version of Windows i.e., Windows 1.0 in 1985. It was the first graphics editor used by almost everyone and was the core part of Windows.

Paint was started as a 1-bit monochrome licensed version of ZSoft’s PC Paintbrush. Until Windows 98, Paint couldn’t save an image in JPEG format.

With the release of Windows 10 Creators Update, Microsoft introduced Paint 3D. Paint 3D comes installed alongside with the old Paint.

Paint 3D

Paint 3D comes with a set of 3D image making tools as well as with some basic 2D editing. But the thing is, it is not an update to old Paint.

Microsoft recently released a list of features that are being removed or deprecated.

The release of the list mentioned MS Paint under deprecated features “not in active development and might be removed in future releases”.

This is pointing towards the removal of our Childhood favourite application in few weeks.

Whenever we wanted to make something out using just our mouse, Paint was always there.

The last updated version of Paint was found in Windows 7. This version was the most improved one but still was very poor in front of other third-party applications.

The exact date of its removal is still not confirmed. Still users will celebrate Paint’s removal as it is the oldest application came with Windows.

The biggest part of our Childhood will be leaving us soon. Do you still use Paint? What do you think about its removal? What are your views towards it? Comment below and let us know.
