Microsoft To Kill Off MS Paint After 32 Years

Creator of Windows, Microsoft has announced that it is ending support to users of Microsoft Paint (MS Paint) after 32 years in use.

According to the tech giant, Autumn Creators Update, which is the next Windows 10 update will do away with the MS Paint which has been the most popular and used graphics editing platform since its release in 1985.

MS Paint thus joins a list of Windows software and features like the reader app and outlook express that Microsoft is considering removing when it’s new update is finally release the months ahead.

Over the years, the software which was revered for its simplicity has served as the first source call for teaching kids some mouse skills as well as even learning some graphic designing.

Users will however not be handing as the removal of the MS Paint will make way for Paint 3D. Released last year, Paint 3D will offer users more flexibility and options to be able to do some 2D editing as well as creating three-dimensional images.

In a related development, however, Microsoft has announced that it is not totally doing away with the MS Paint but rather it will still be available for free through the Windows Store.
