Microsoft to kill off MS Paint after 32 Years

Another one gone.

Quote:Microsoft’s next Windows 10 update, called the Autumn (or Fall in the US) Creators Update, will bring a variety of new features. But one long-standing stalwart of the Windows experience has been put on the chopping block: Microsoft Paint.

First released with the very first version of Windows 1.0 in 1985, Paint in its various guises 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. But it is not an update to original Paint and doesn’t behave like it.

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

I drew a house, a couple of mean faces all badly, and that was about the end of my fun. For me it was useless.

Me neither, like since Windows 98 se chuckle.gif
Somewhere though, someone is going to be upset.
I noticed they are removing 3d builder too, but you can get it as an app from Windows store. 15.gif
The first thing I do with a Windows 10 major upgrade is run power shell to get rid of every app that's not bolted down.

I never used it, but I guess if you're an old fart and like crayons it's a good program.
