Microsoft Will Deprecate Paint As Well As Several Other Features In Upcoming Fall Creators Update

Only a magician could have predicted that Microsoft would be planning to pull the plug on MS Paint which has been included in all versions of Windows since the beginning. The Fall Creators update will remove some features present on Windows 10 devices whereas some other will be merged with existing and up-to-date apps.

It has to be said that Microsoft has received a fair amount of criticism from users due to controversial features such as Telemetry on Windows 10 and later on brought to Windows 7 as well. People are still reluctant to upgrade from Windows 7 to Windows 10, despite Microsoft's best efforts.

A full list of features being removed or deprecated are given below:
  • 3D Builder app
  • Apndatabase.xml
  • Enhanced Mitigation Experience Toolkit (EMET)
  • IIS 6 Management Compatibility
  • IIS Digest Authentication
  • Microsoft Paint
  • Outlook Express
  • Reader app
  • Reading List
  • RSA/AES Encryption for IIS
  • Sync Your Settings
  • Screen saver functionality in Themes
  • Syskey.exe
  • System Image Backup (SIB) Solution
