Microsoft bids bye to ‘Paint’ after 32 years with Windows 10 fall creators update

Microsoft bids bye to ‘Paint’ after 32 years with Windows 10 fall creators update

Tech giant’ Microsoft Paint is something we have been grown up with. Introduced in1980s, Paint has been recognized as one of the first tools that has trained us how to sketch use dissimilar shape presets, make quick copy and paste jobs, or just scrawl when we had nothing improved to do. 32 years later, the tech giant Microsoft is pulling apart our childhood when it discontinue hold up for Paint with the discharge of Windows 10 Fall Creators Update.

Setup in the year 1985 with Windows 1.0, Paint was then one of the first graphics editors which in a very less time became a household feature for Windows users. It was only by Windows 98 that one could found saving Paint files as JPEG. Apart from Paint, Microsoft has also added Outlook Express, Reader App, and Reader List to its list of "features that are removed or deprecated in Windows 10 Fall Creators Update." Paint falls under the deplore column, which means that these apps will not be in lively development and will likely be removed in future releases.

The move of Killing off Paint suggests that Microsoft wants to shove users towards adopting Paint 3D, which was freshly introduced in the month of April with the Windows 10 Creators Update as a further professional editing software. Paint 3D gives users 3D image making tools along with the 2D tools. In fact, Microsoft's hold page also mentions that the 3D Builder app will no longer be installed by default, urging users to use Paint 3D instead.

However, Microsoft's Paint software will always be remembered as a good tutor, among several other things it made easy, it’s effortless user interface that made it easy to make creative content. Whether or not this shift will shove people to believe Paint 3D is something that will have to be seen once the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update rolls out.
