Microsoft brushes off claims about killing Paint on new Windows

Microsft seemed to have a change of heart after fans of Microsoft Paint expressed their disappointment that their favorite photo editing tool will be removed from new version of Windows.

On its blog, Microsoft said “Paint is here to stay. it will just have a new home soon, in the Windows Store where it will be available for free.”

Microsoft also added that Paint 3D will continue to get new feature updates. In addition to the new 3D capabilities, many of the MS Paint features people know and love like photo editing, line and curve tools, and 2D creation are in Paint 3D.
