The Paint application appears in the list under Microsoft as a "legacy" feature for future software releases.
Although the tech giant said that this feature "is not in active development" and may soon be removed, it is unclear whether the Paint is officially not present in the Windows 10 upgrade Creators Fall Update, expected this fall.
Paint was released in 1985 with the first version of Windows 1.0. The program was included in every software update to date.
Easy to use tool allows users to crop and resize images, and create simple drawings. Despite the constraints - it cannot be used for complex editing or design photos. Paint is nostalgia among many Windows users. According to Microsoft, last year the Paint was still more than 100 million users per month.
Other functions that can be removed when you upgrade to Windows 10 include Outlook Express, Microsoft Reader and reading list, bookmarks. (Microsoft says that the last two will be integrated with the Microsoft Edge).
But that doesn't mean that the Paint is gone forever. It will be available for free in the Windows Store, but will not receive the update, said a Microsoft representative. In addition, Microsoft in October last year demonstrated a 3D Paint, updated spinoff, which allows users to create 3D images. Paint 3D will be supplied with current and future versions of Windows.
