Microsoft Paint gets a makeover in Windows 11

Paint has been included on every version of Windows but hasn’t received any major updates for many years, but the time has finally arrived.

Abbreviation MS Paint (Microsoft Paint).

Newer, more sleek design

Unfortunately, we have no new features to talk about today, as Microsoft haven’t officially announced any app changes to Paint, but on a website called Unsplash we were able to come across this teased photo of a woman using Windows 11 on a tablet and running Microsoft Paint.

Bye bye old ribbon design, say hello to the new simplified UI (user interface) introduced by Microsoft for Windows 11.

Microsoft Paint

Microsoft Paint was first introduced in Windows 1.0, making it the very first ‘graphics’ application ever released for the most popular desktop operating system. And thus, it may not be used, but it is loved by generations who have grown up using computer systems.

In 2017, Microsoft officially announced that they were going to phase MS Paint out of Windows as the updates continued, and this was going to go ahead. Microsoft didn’t expect it, but it caused a major uproar among the Windows community, and thus in 2019, Microsoft revoked their statement and decided to keep the application running.

Microsoft Paint was never, isn’t, and will never be as good as the most popular graphics design applications such as Photoshop, Illustrator, GIMP, Inkscape or even Paint 3D which is included with Windows and can work with 3D manipulation.
