Microsoft paint getting killed, No official word yet on when Paint might be removed from Windows. We still don’t know the exact date when the Fall Creators Update will arrive, either, though it’s expected to roll out sometime this October.

The company has announced a list of applications that will be either “removed” or “deprecated” from the Windows 10 Fall Creators update, which is due to release later this year. Not just Microsoft Paint, the software giant is planning to kill Outlook Express, Reader app and Reading list in a future update.

Microsoft Paint was basically a workalike copy of the MacPaint, which was one of the free tools supplied with the original Apple Macintosh. MacPaint was dropped ages ago, though (the last version was 1988!)-- it was groundbreaking for its time, but basically primitive by any modern standards.

Still, it does mark an end of the road for the classic image-editing app. So later this year, when you update your computer to the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, don’t forget to pour one out for Paint.

Microsoft Paint, the ever-present software, and friend to all, has drawn its last line. Ever since 1985, the art app has been a staple component in the lives of those learning to understand computers and the Windows operating system.

You'd think with all the evil metrics Win10 collects, they'd have some idea about how heavily used this tool is. If Paint3D is a feature-complete replacement, that's fine, but I have no indication that this is the case.

Microsoft's Paint software will be remembered for, among other things, its simple user interface that made it easy to create artistic content. Whether or not this move will push people to accept Paint 3D is something that will have to be seen once the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update rolls out.

Microsoft Paint was a simple computer graphics app that has been included with all versions of Microsoft Windows. The first version of Paint was introduced with the first version of Windows, Windows 1.0, in November 1985.

First released with the very first version of Windows 1.0 in 1985, Paint in its various guises would be one of the first graphics editors used by many and became a core part of Windows. Starting life as a 1-bit monochrome licensed version of ZSoft’s PC Paintbrush, it wasn’t until Windows 98 that Paint could save in JPEG.
