You remember that Microsoft was about to move the classic Paint app to the Microsoft Store and exclude it from Windows 10 by default. This decision has been cancelled, but looks like that story is not over yet. Now Paint appears in the list of optional features in Windows 10.
The classic Paint app which comes bundled with Windows 10 is familiar to almost every user. Microsoft is updating the application with new accessibility features that should make the app easier to use.
As you may remember, starting with build 17063, the classic Microsoft Paint app in Windows 10 comes with a "Product Alert" button. Clicking on the button opens a dialog that suggests that the app will be occasionally replaced with Paint 3D, and will be moved to the Store. This plan has finally changed.

Starting with Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, Microsoft is ditching the good old Paint app and replacing it with a new Modern app called "Paint 3D". Classic Paint's new home will be the Windows Store, but I am afraid it won't stay there forever. Many people are not happy with this change because the old mspaint.exe loaded faster, was more usable for mouse and keyboard users and allowed quickly pasting images from the clipboard, cropping them and saving them. If you would like to get the classic Paint app back in Windows 10, it is possible. In this article, we will see how to restore Classic Paint back in Windows 10.
As mentioned in the article about the features which are going to be removed from Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, the classic Paint app is deprecated. This means no new features will be released for it and further development on it is stopped. Microsoft today clarified what will happen with the good, old 2D drawing tool which ships with Windows since the very first version of the OS.
In Windows 10 build 15019, the classic Paint got a strange update. The application now has a special button to open the Paint 3D app from classic Paint. Just a single button seems to be added.
Microsoft is about to push more Universal apps in place of their good old Win32 counterparts. This time it is Microsoft Paint, which was completely replaced with the UWP-based application "Paint 3D".
