For years there has been a deadlock over whether to remove Microsoft Paint from Windows 10. First was the decision to eliminate the tool originally introduced in 1985, somewhere in an update of the operating system of 2017, giving it place a new and more modern Paint 3D. Shortly after, Microsoft said that the tool would not be "wiped out" but would become a free application available in Windows Store.
Two years later, the classic Microsoft Paint tool will remain as an integral part of Windows 10. The confirmation came in the absence of the usual application removal warnings in the May 1903 update. Experts quickly contacted the Redmond giant, who through Windows senior programmer Brandon LeBlanc said the application would continue to be present with the new update. "It will stay in Windows 10 for now," replied the programmer.
It is unknown for how long Paint will still continue as part of Windows 10, because the main features of the program are being integrated into the Paint 3D application. It lacks confirmation whether Microsoft will keep the two applications embedded in the operating system, or if the manufacturer is not yet ready to say goodbye to the classic drawing tool.
