Yesterday, we’ve reported that Microsoft might remove MS Paint from Windows 10 in the near future as the company gearing up to release Fall Creators Update for the operating system. As it turns out, the trusty image editor which has been an unmissable part of Windows operating system for the past 32 years will continue to live on.
That being said though, there will be some changes to how the software will continue to be part of Windows family. In a brief statement over at Windows Experience Blog by the General Manager of 3D for Everyone Initiative, Megan Saunders, MS Paint will be made available to users through Windows Store.
Of course, it will remain free of charge to everyone as well. Even though users are able to continue using it, there is no mention whether Microsoft has reversed its decision to deprecated the app or otherwise although we would put much hope on that given the fact that the company is now focusing its effort on Paint 3D which was part of Creators Update that was released earlier this year.
At the same time, the announcement also didn’t provide any confirmed transition timeline for MS Paint to be reborn as a Windows Store app although we do expect it to happen when Microsoft begin to roll out Fall Creators Update to end users.
