Get Old MS Paint On Windows 10Windows 10

In the new Windows 10 Build 14971, Microsoft has decided to remove the old MS Paint to incorporate the new Paint 3D app. Officially, there hasn’t been given any reason to anyone for discarding the old one. Likely, the reason seemed for removing the app was only to discard the old one.

All the Win32 applications are slowly being discarded for the new UWP apps. First the Calculator, then the Live Essentials and now the Paint app. From now, you can expect a lot of the traditional apps pre-installed on Windows to be replaced by their newer and sometimes better counterparts.

All the keyboard and mouse users may feel uncomfortable without the old version of MS Paint on their systems. Because they load faster and allowed the user to quickly paste, crop and save an image.

The last update to the Windows Paint was in Windows 7. In that, we got the ribbon interface and addition of nice brushes to draw. The new Paint 3D has many features like support for 3D printing, layers, and transparency.

To own the classic MS Paint in your systems, follow the below steps :

Uninstall Paint 3D Preview

Step 1 : Select Win key and search for Paint 3D Preview on the Start menu. This will probably be either at the top or in the P section.

Step 2 : Right click on Paint 3D Preview application and select Uninstall.
