Microsoft to terminate Paint

There are many smart features coming soon with the Fall Creators Update on Microsoft Windows 10. Microsoft said that some of the features in the update will include improvements on accessibility fonts and the addition of “Device Learning Mode” to the Narrator, which is the operating system’s screen reading utility. But that is not all, Microsoft will also end some products which include the likes of Microsoft Paint and Outlook Express.

Microsoft explained in a support post, that some of the these features will be completely removed, while others will be “deprecated”, meaning it will no longer be supported by Microsoft and be subjected for removal in future versions of Windows 10.

Microsoft Paint has been a part of Windows since almost the beginning, making its debut in Windows 1.0, in November 1985. As mentioned, Microsoft Paint, the simple graphics app which has been a part of Windows since the very beginning, will be dumped. Of course, that’s mainly because it’s been superseded by Paint 3D, but still, some folks might shed a nostalgic tear over the lightweight program.
