On July 24, The Guardian noted that Microsoft has included the legendary MS Paint app in the list of “Features that are removed or deprecated in Windows 10 Fall Creators Update,” and we also covered the story. The news left many users disappointed, but turns out, it’s not the end for MS Paint.
In a recent blog-post posted today, Microsoft clarified that MS Paint isn’t going anywhere and is “here to stay”.
“MS Paint is here to stay, it will have just a new home soon, in the Windows Store where it will be available for free,” the company wrote in the blog post.
Additionally, the company also confirmed that the Paint 3D – the new photo-editing app is available for free with the Windows 10 Creator Update, and will continue to get feature updates.
“In addition to the new 3D capabilities, many of the MS Paint features people know and love like photo editing, line and curve tools, and 2D creation are in Paint 3D,” the blog reads.
