Microsoft deprecate Paint in the new update, not remove it
Microsoft said they will deprecate Paint in the new update, not remove it.
Did you know there’s a difference?
- Removal of a feature means that it’s completely gone with no official method to restore it.
- Download an alternative or use some kind of trick to get it working again.
- Microsoft (and other companies) removes features when they’re no longer needed.
- On the other hand, deprecation means that the manufacturer discourages a feature’s use but leaves it available.
- Deprecation occurs when a feature is unsafe or gets replaced with a superior alternative.
- You can still use them even though they’re not under active development.
But deprecated features often come with a warning recommending other solutions.
This is where Microsoft Paint was gone, with Paint 3D as its successor.
