MS Paint, the basic drawing tool which has existed for ages might be removed from Windows OS with the release of the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update later this year.
Microsoft has released a list of the features that are either being “removed” or “deprecated” in the Windows 10 Creators update, and Paint is listed in the latter category. Paint will be deprecated, with development ceasing on a piece of software. Redmond has already prepared a better and feature rich Paint 3D to replace its predecessor.
MS Paint, which has been shipped on every single version of Windows ever created until now, is one of the Microsoft’s most famous apps. Editing images using Paint is like a child’s play and is beloved by many. Paint app wasn’t originally developed by Microsoft, it was a licensed version of the PC Paintbrush app created by ZSoft Corporation. It first arrived for the Windows OS with the release of Windows 1.0 in 1985.
The tech company has released a support document listing the “removed” (removed from the product in the current release) and “deprecated” (not in active development and might be removed in future releases) applications and services from the Fall Creators Update.
Other features that are being deprecated include Windows PowerShell 2.0, IIS Digest Authentication, TPM remote management, Sync Your Settings, and System Image Backup. The removed features include the 3D Builder app, Reader app, screen saver functionality in themes, Outlook Express, and TPM owner password management.
