Microsoft Paint Will Now Live on As a Free Download

A sign marks the Microsoft office in Cambridge Massachusetts

While Paint's move to the deprecated features list means the program will no longer be updated, it's unclear when Microsoft will be removing the program entirely. According to reports, Microsoft has announced that the Paint will live on after users from all across the world urged the company not to discontinue its 32-year-old program.

Microsoft Paint is here to stay, stated the multinational technology company on Monday. And now 32 years later, Microsoft has put the Microsoft Paint in the "removed and deprecated" list for the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update. "It's been incredible to see so much love for our trusty old app". "It's been fantastic to see so much love for our trusty old app", read a blog post.

While Paint will no longer be part of Windows operating system by default, it will be available free in the Windows Store and be updated by the United States software powerhouse, according to Saunders. If your administrator doesn't allow employees to install any apps from the Windows Store, you can no longer take advantage of this useful tool.
