For fans of Microsoft Paint, their artistic visions won’t have to languish much longer. The once popular program for drawing and painting, which made its debut with Windows 1.0 in 1985, could finally be moving to the Microsoft Store.
In a blog post announcing the Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 21354, Microsoft said MSPaint will be “updateable via the Microsoft Store outside major OS updates.”
In 2017, Microsoft said Paint would be available through the Microsoft Store, instead of as part of its OS. The company backed away from that somewhat and left the program in Windows 10 for several years. Now it finally appears the move is happening.
No word yet on when Paint will be available to all.
