Microsoft Paint To Be Killed In New Windows Update | Geek Winky

The Windows 10 Fall Creators update is only a few months away and anticipation is high for the next round of new features.But while the update will no doubt be well-received, it seems Microsoft has plans to kill off a number of programs that many a Windows user will consider standard inclusions.
Microsoft Paint is one of the Windows operating system features that has been with PC users since the beginning. Before the rise of graphics editor Photoshop, most people scribbled on MS Paint.
However, it may be time to say goodbye to this feature once the Windows 10 “Fall Creators Update” rolls out. Well that's disgraceful...😞

 According to The Guardian, MS Paint and a few other features may be removed once the “Fall Creators Update” goes live. The list of deactivated features include Outlook Express, Reader app, and Reading list.

Paint was never one of the most capable apps, and was limited to the bitmap (BMP) and PCX formats until 1998, but if you wanted to scribble something out using your mouse or make a quick cut and paste job, Paint was always there, even on work computers.

Taking over for the 32-year-old MS Paint is the new Paint 3D which was introduced in the Creators Update released in April. It features traditional 2D image editing functionality as well as 3D image making tools.
No doubt the addition of this 3D drawing tool is affected by the growing trend in virtual reality and Microsoft’s own development efforts on its HoloLens augmented reality headset.

As of writing, an exact date on the removal of MS Paint or the release of the “Fall Creators Update” has yet to be determined.

Given that MS Paint did not get a modification from the last “Creators Update”, the move possibly suggests that this feature’s time is drawing to a close.
