Microsoft Paint to Remain a Part of Windows 10…

Microsoft Paint lovers will be happy to hear the simple graphics editor has been granted a reprieve and won’t be removed as a standard feature of Windows 10.

Microsoft announced in July last year that MS Paint was being deprecated from Windows 10, which was later clarified to mean you could still use it, but a download would be required first. We expected the change to be made with the Fall Creators Update, but MS Paint remained in place. Now it’s hanging around indefinitely it seems.

Brandon LeBlanc, senior program manager for the Windows Insider Program Team tweeted the above confirmation yesterday in response to a question. 1903 refers to Windows 10 Build 1903, otherwise known as the May 2019 Update.

Although the tweet doesn’t confirm MS Paint will remain a standard feature of Windows 10 forever, it certainly suggests we won’t see it disappear in the near future. I’d guess Microsoft may just not mention it again and keep shipping the editor for years to come. We can hope, right?

As I’ve stated previously, the reason MS Paint remains so popular and appreciated by the Windows-using community is the fact it’s always there if you need to quickly adjust or make an image. Yes, there are a number of more capable alternatives, but they aren’t standard and therefore may not always be an option.
