If you were a child in the nineties, you probably were on your computer for the sole purpose of getting on Microsoft Paint. Sadly, the iconic graphics tool that defined some of our earliest computer experiences will be omitted from the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update. The newly-deprecated tool first existed as a 1-bit monochrome feature during the Windows 1.0 era in 1985.
While many of us are mourning its impending removal, Microsoft does say that Paint will be integrated into its spin-off, Paint 3D. Further, Microsoft has not specified as to when the tool will be removed.
Paint is not dead yet, so we should make the best of it while it’s still around. If you just can’t say goodbye to Paint, there’s always the option not to install the update when it’s available.
