Goodbye, Microsoft Paint

The upcoming update of Windows 10 may completely remove its Microsoft Paint feature.

Before Photoshop, the MS Paint feature of Microsoft was the first graphic editor used by so many people. It is the easiest photo editor to use if you are just going to cut or crop, and paste an image. It was released together with the first version of Windows 1.0 in 1985.  But after 32 years, Microsoft Paint will be completely removed and will be replaced with the new Paint 3D.

Last April, Microsoft introduced the new Paint 3D in the Creators Update. This new feature has its 2D editing function as well as the tools for making 3D images. Aside from the MS Paint, there are still other features that may be removed after the Windows 10 “Fall Creators Update,” such as the Outlook Express, Reader App, and Reading List. You can see the full list of programs to be discarded here. (

In the list, the Microsoft Paint is in the deprecated column. These are the features that are not in active development, thus can be removed in the future.

However, there is still no confirmed date for the release of the “Fall Creators Update”.
