Microsoft has confirmed that it will continue to offer its graphics program Paint.
In a recent update, it had listed Paint as a feature that would be either removed or no longer developed.
Paint, renowned for its simplicity, has been part of the Windows operating system since its launch in 1985.
Microsoft suggested it would not remain on Windows 10 by default but did say it would be available for free on the Windows Store.
Its successor, Paint 3D, will be part of the Windows 10 package.

Of all the various categories of freeware that have been out there since Day 1, MS Paint type programs are probably near the top of the heap numerically speaking. Aside from the easy learning curve, due to how little you can do with it, there are numerous others that are around, and can do more--all you have to do is ignore the features that you don't want to be bothered to learn.

I use it for that at work instead of linking to a whole webpage to be "fair and appropriate".
