The Paint has existed since the beginning of the OS family of Windows. But only in “seven” he learned to work with PNG and has an updated design. And recently it became known that the novelty would like to remove in favor of 3D Paint. The program itself should “move” in the Microsoft Store.
And here’s the next step — the Corporation will soon make it possible to remove Paint from Windows 10. As noted, in the latest version of Windows Insider Build, released to insiders branches 20H1, Paint is no longer a system component, but merely additional. This may indicate the preparation for the transfer of a program store universal app.
It is obvious that such a possibility is still at an early stage of development as the attempt to remove Paint in an Assembly 18956 currently has no effect. Apparently, it is not a priority to be resolved in the course of development closer to the time of release of the spring update.
Note that in Windows 10 May 2019 Update program there, although originally it was planned to remove in the spring of this year. But in Redmond changed his mind, although he did not specify a reason. It should be noted that the application for several years does not develop. There are no new features, support for modern formats, layers, and so on. Although some innovations still promised.
However, in the asset at the Paint remained the main feature of almost instant start-up, which in some cases can be critical. Therefore it can be assumed that few users will take advantage of the Microsoft offer and refuse the application.
