    Windows 10 Paint app is finally heading to its new home “Microsoft Store”


    Microsoft Paint app is not going away and it will now receive improvements or updates via the Windows 10’s app store. In the future, Microsoft will offer MS Paint in the Windows Store for free and still maintain the Paint 3D app to ensure that all tools for creators are available in one place.

    Way back in 2017, reports suggested that MS Paint is heading to the Recycle Bin with the Fall Creators Update. After user backlash, Microsoft promised that the classic Paint app is “here to stay” and it would be moved to the Windows Store for faster updates. However, that never happened and Microsoft started offering Paint as an “optional feature”.

    1,300 days after the announcement, Microsoft has finally published the Paint app in the Windows Store where the app will be a free download. In future versions of Windows, Paint will receive updates via the Store, but it’s not yet unclear if it would be developed any further or Microsoft will focus only on Paint 3D.

    Anyone who doesn’t want to use this simple graphics app can still remove it by following these steps:

    • Open Settings > Apps & Features.
    • Click on the link to manage optional features.
    • Select and uninstall Paint.

    Once the Paint app is removed, you can restore it via the same optional features page or reinstall the app from the Microsoft Store.

    Like Notepad, Paint will also move out of the accessories folder in the Start Menu.

    Microsoft is making Paint 3D features completely optional


    For those who like MS Paint and hate Paint 3D, Microsoft is making the 3D graphics app completely optional.

    In clean installs of Windows 10 version 21H2, 3D Viewer and Paint 3D are going away, and Microsoft is also removing the “Edit with Paint 3D” option from the context menu. However, you can still get them from the Microsoft Store.

    These changes are currently scheduled to go live later this year with Windows 10’s Sun Valley update.

  2. Microsoft signals end of Paint program

    Microsoft has confirmed that it will continue to offer its graphics program Paint.

    In a recent update, it had listed Paint as a feature that would be either removed or no longer developed.

    Paint, renowned for its simplicity, has been part of the Windows operating system since its launch in 1985.

    Microsoft suggested it would not remain on Windows 10 by default but did say it would be available for free on the Windows Store.

    Microsoft is purging a lot of low quality apps from the Windows Store

    "Microsoft is sending emails to some Windows Store developers informing them that their apps have been removed from the Store for violating its quality standards."

    "Neowin reports that app developers have been receiving these emails over the past couple of days:

    In its latest review of the Store, Microsoft is evaluating if the published apps are good enough to be listed in the Windows Store. This includes publicly available apps as well as private beta apps. Additionally, Microsoft is also asking developers to delete any promotional campaigns for their apps to prevent advertising charges. Similarly, app name reservations are also being nullified; which means that if your app is unpublished, there's no guarantee that you'll be able to republish it under the same name.

    Officially, the policies for the Microsoft Store says that apps must have "distinct and informative metadata" and "provide a valuable and quality user experience". There are also some specific standards that must be in the apps, including having a name that is not similar to another app or device, along with offering a description that is accurate about its features and functions.

    There have certainly been many Windows Store users who have complained over the years about the large number of apps published that are clones of other apps or ones that are simply poorly made. Hopefully, this new move by Microsoft will help to curb these issues, at least for now.
