MS Paint lives! Will be available as free download on Windows Store

After receiving a huge backlash online, the American multinational tech-firm, Microsoft Corporation has clarified that it is not killing off its much-loved ‘MS Paint App’ with the upcoming Windows 10 Fall Creators Update. Rather, it will remain as a free app and users can download it from Window Store quickly. It means MS Paint won’t come as a pre-installed version for Window users.

A few days earlier, Microsoft published a list of its apps and features that will either be eradicated or denounced with the arrival of Windows 10 Fall Creators Update and soon after the publication went viral, the Redmond-headquartered company started receiving a massive counterattack on the internet for including the much beloved MS Paint in the targeted list. However, after coming across massive criticism, the company with a new official release, has now confirmed that it is not going to stamp out the MS Paint app from the feature list of Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, rather it will be an optional download option for Window users.

In a recent statement provided by a senior official of Microsoft to MSPoweruser, the company has spelt out that Microsoft Paint App is not going to be eliminated from the new updated version of Window 10. Instead, the company is introducing the app to the Windows Store as a non-compulsory download for users, and those who are interested can download the MS Paint app directly from the Window Store.

As said by Microsoft, “MS Paint is not heading off. Instead, with the new additions of features like 3D capabilities, the MS with more creativity options and opportunities, will be available for free download from the Window Store with the Windows 10 Creators update. In the future, MS Paint’s download from Window Store will remain free of cost so that users can enjoy their best creative tools with 3D features all in one place.”
