From the days of glass screens and boxy computers of yesteryear to the sleek, lightweight laptops of today, in the 32 years since Microsoft Windows was introduced, users have always been able to doodle in Microsoft Paint.

Earlier, media reports said on Monday that Microsoft's Windows 10 Fall Creators Update that is expected soon will not feature the 1985-released MS Paint, a popular app among children that has seen several generations grow with it. She says that the outpouring of support for MS Paint caught the company's attention and that it needs to clarify some things.

While for many, Microsoft Paint was nothing more than a distraction, in its almost 32 years the program has been used to make some seriously impressive creations. Don't worry, though, because there's a newer and better art program you can use to make goofy doodles with, and you can love it just as much as you loved dumb old Paint.

Paint 3D was introduced in October a year ago as both a replacement for MS paint - an application first launched in 1985 - and a key pillar of the push to make Windows a hub for 3D and mixed reality creation. But because MS Paint will no longer be a default core part of Windows, it may not be the same.

Home users, on the other hand, can easily download it for free from the Windows Store.

Saunders also notes that the tech company has another app that can be used in place of MS Paint.

Microsoft already has a Paint alternative, Paint 3D, which includes similar tools along with, as the name suggests, a few 3D editing options.

However, it appears that the app will not come pre-installed in Windows 10 Creators Update versions. The 32-year-old app is arguably one of the simplest yet powerful artistic software available till date. And the latest update for Windows 10, which is called Autumn (or Fall), will be comprising of a whole new features, being updated for the users. So, MS Paint we hope you're yet to have your finest hours.
