UPDATE: Due to the “incredible outpouring of support and nostalgia around MS Paint,” the company announced in a blog post that it won’t be axed anymore, but is merely moving to a new “home.” The app is heading to the Microsoft Store, where it will be available to anyone. The post says it will happen soon.
For ’90s kids, using Microsoft Paint was an early memory that came with learning how to use computers. It was announced today that the program is coming to an end with the upcoming Windows 10 Fall Creators Update. Paint launched in 1985 with Windows 1.0 and it kept up with the tech giant through the years. Fret not, the program is retiring but Microsoft will be replacing it with Paint 3D – a new and updated version.
