The transition of MS Paint to the Microsoft Store continues to be moving forwards four years after the company revealed the update. The app isn’t currently available in the app store, although there have been news of a placeholder emerging in anticipation for its release.

Microsoft revealed in 2017 that the graphics app will be phased out after 32 years.

Is it possible to paint? “, the software is now used by millions of people for fast and simple editing.
