Earlier today, reports began mistaking Microsoft's plans to deprecate MS Paint starting with the Fall Creators Update with killing the program outright. It turns out that isn't going to be the case, with Microsoft announcing today that MS Paint is coming to the Windows Store for free instead!
MS Paint, first introduced to Windows over 32 years ago, will be coming to the Windows Store for free very soon. It looks like Microsoft is planning to take MS Paint out of Windows 10 by default, placing it in the Windows Store instead for anyone who wishes to continue to use it.
Windows 10 will continue to have an inbox paint app known as Paint 3D however, that's already available to users running the Creators Update. Paint 3D is the modern-era version of MS Paint, with new capabilities and functions that bring it up to 2017 standards.
So, for those of you who were worried that MS Paint was going away, you can now relax. MSPaint.exe is merely being moved into the Windows Store, so you will still be able to use it whenever you need.
