After 32 years, Microsoft finally kills off Paint



Surely 80s and 90s kids remember the Windows 3.1 operating system or its newer cousin Windows 9.5 and more importantly, its basic graphics editing program, Paint?

First released with Windows 1.0 in 1985, Paint has kept many of us entertained through our childhoods and even managed to tide some of us through our working lives. My colleague still uses Paint today to save her screenshots.


Unfortunately, Microsoft has announced that with the next Windows 10 update, called the Autumn (or Fall in the US) Creators Update, alongside Outlook Express, Reader app and Reading list, Microsoft Paint has been added to the “features that are removed or deprecated in Windows 10 Fall Creators Update” list.
