The legendary graphics software Paint will be available separately from the Windows operating system. Microsoft will now make this software independent from Windows by moving it to the Microsoft Store.
Microsoft finally decided to keep its promise to Windows 10 users three years ago for the Microsoft Paint desktop app.
Recall that Microsoft released a “creative” Windows 10 Creators Update in spring 2017 with an app called Paint 3D, which announced that the classic Paint, which has been part of Windows for decades, will disappear from the system in six months. This development made users angry and unhappy. The company has promised that in a few days it will make its classic graphics software available for everyone to download from the Microsoft Store.
Notepad will share the same fate
More than 3 years have passed since then, and Microsoft has only now fulfilled its promise. The Microsoft Paint page appeared in the Microsoft Store but is not yet available for download. The application, which is also available for download soon, will be able to be updated separately from the operating system.
Let us remind you that in the big Windows 10 update (Windows 10 21H2, codenamed Sun Valley) in the fall of 2021, the unpopular Paint 3D application will be removed from the system. Also, with the release of Windows 10 21H2, another veteran of the system, Notepad, is expected to be moved to the Microsoft Store.
