The Fate of Windows MS Paint

Windows MS PaintWindows will be adding new features to its platform in the Windows Fall Creators Update,  and there were rumors that this update might be the end of MS Paint (launched in 1985). Apparently,  this long lived program is on a list of programs that Microsoft will stop actively developing,  so it was feared that a future update could completely remove it.

Microsoft has since said that MS Paint will be moved to the Microsoft Store and will be free for download.  Paint 3D does what most of what MS Paint can do and will have 3D capabilities, photo editing and 2D creation.  Paint 3D app will be available for free with the Windows 10 Creators Update.
