about us

Published on : Jul 25, 2017

We all remember how Microsoft Paint played an important role during our schooldays and helped us create pretty pictures before we gained knowledge about Photoshop and Corel Draw. After having a successful history, Microsoft has decided to include Paint in the list of features of Windows 10 that will either be no longer developed or entirely removed. Paint has been a crucial part of the Windows OS since 1985 and is famous among users for its basic artistic features and simplicity. However, the successor of Paint, Paint 3D will be still available.

What are the other changes being implemented by Microsoft?

The list of removing and putting a halt to the development of certain applications was issued as a fragment of the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update. This is expected to be rolled out in autumn. The other different features that are likely to removed or put to a halt in terms of development are Outlook Express which will be substituted by the built-in Mail application and the also the Reader application. This will be incorporated into Microsoft Edge.

A lot of people have expressed their disappointment regarding the shutdown of Microsoft Paint and have also said that it is the greatest application to have ever been created. Jim’ll Paint It, is an artist who uses Paint to create outstanding themes which are commissioned by unknown people. He has almost 700, 000 Facebook followers. A lot of developers are also expressing their grief with the pull back of paint.
