Microsoft Might Be Having Second Thoughts About Classic Paint in Windows 10
The classic Paint app wasn’t supposed to be part of Microsoft’s modern Windows 10 experience, so the company announced a long time ago that this little tool would just go away and make room for the brand-new Paint 3D app.
As a way to ease the transition, Microsoft originally intended to publish the classic Paint app in the Microsoft Store, thus allowing users who still wanted to install it to do so even if the feature was removed from Windows 10.
In the meantime, an alert included in Paint warned users that “this version of Paint will soon be replaced with Paint 3D. Classic Paint will then become available in the Store.” This way, Microsoft wanted to make everyone aware not only that the classic Paint app is going away, but also that a new, more capable replacement was available.
And surprisingly, these plans might have changed, as the product alert implemented in Paint has recently been removed.
