Microsoft Paint finally appears in Microsoft store
Some time ago Microsoft has announced that its popular classic Paint app would be released in Microsoft Store for Windows 10 users.
t seems that this is finally happening, as the Italian blog Aggiornamenti Lumia has posted information about the classic Paint app becoming available in Windows 10 store. Unfortunately, classic Paint is still not available for all Windows 10 users at this time.
We have published an article back in late 2017 when Microsoft announced that the classic Paint app won’t be replaced with the Paint 3D app, but rather have a new home in Windows Store. Since then there was no update regarding the classic Paint app until now.
Microsoft Paint which’s now published in the Microsoft Store comes with a new icon inspired by Microsoft’s Fluent Design, even though it’s pretty similar to the current icon that we’re all used to. Having Paint now published in Microsoft Store, Microsoft will be able to update it more easily and frequently. Similar to what was already done with the Notepad app.
On the other hand, Microsoft is removing Paint 3D and 3D viewer apps as those will no longer come pre-installed on new Windows 10 installations, even though both of these apps will remain available in Microsoft Store.
