MS Paint app to remain part of Windows 10


Microsoft confirmed its Paint app will continue to remain in Windows 10 despite several warnings the app would be removed from the OS.


The software maker had been warning Windows 10 users for months that Paint would eventually be removed, The Verge reported Yes, MS Paint will be included in 1903. It’ll remain included in Windows 10 for now,” Brandon LeBlanc, Senior Programme Manager, Windows Insider Programme Team at Microsoft, confirmed in a reply to a tweet.

Good news for Windows 10 users as Microsoft is keeping the Paint app, for now at least. Microsoft earlier said it would remove MS Paint from Windows 10 but the company has reversed the decision.

In the latest Windows May 2019 Update (1903), Microsoft hasn’t issued any warnings fro MS Paint app removal. 

Previously, the software-maker marked Paint as “deprecated”, meaning it was not in active development and could be removed in future releases of Windows.

 The company had planned to remove it from Windows 10 and include it later as a free optional download from the Microsoft Store.


Most of the main MS Paint functions were to be integrated into the more modern Paint 3D app, as part of a broader push to entice creators to use Windows 10.

 It remains unclear if Microsoft still remains committed to Paint 3D or why there will continue to be two paint apps included with Windows 10 in the future, the report said.

Once kids’ favourite Microsoft Paint will be brushed aside for 3D drawing Microsoft on Monday announced the end of days for its pioneering Paint application as it focuses on software for 3-D drawing.


Paint drawing and image processing software that made its debut in 1985 with the Windows operating system was among the applications listed as “removed or deprecated” in a Windows 10 Fall Creators Update set for release later this year.


Features or functions on the list “are not in active development and might be removed in future releases,” according to the US technology company.


For decades, Paint was among applications installed by default on Windows-powered personal computers and drew a strong following.


Fans of the application will be able to take solace in a Paint 3-D version launched early this year.Reversing its decision of excluding the Paint app from Windows 10, software giant Microsoft has decided to let it stay.


The software maker had been warning Windows 10 users for months that Paint would eventually be removed but those warnings failed from making way into the latest May 2019 update (1903) of Windows 10, The Verge reported on Tuesday.

LeBlanc didn’t reveal why Microsoft had removed its warnings, but it’s clear Paint will no longer be removed from Windows 10 in the immediate future. Microsoft previously marked Paint as “deprecated,” meaning it wasn’t in active development and could be removed in future releases of Windows.
