Microsoft took the internet by storm when they first announced that they will be deprecating MS-Paint app in favor of the UWP paint app called Paint 3D. However, the plan was not to kill the classic Paint app but to make it an app that no longer ships with the operating system by making it pushing it to the Microsoft store.

And since the app was so much popular the company couldn’t kill it overnight, instead, Microsoft built a little product alert box into the app clicking on which will give users alert with: “This version of Paint will soon be replaced with Paint 3D. Classic Paint will then become available in the store.”

As first noticed by Aggiornamenti Lumia, the company might further stretch the deadline of MS-Paint becoming a Microsoft Store-only app. Users with PCs running the latest build of 19H1 are no longer seeing the product alert notice on the classic paint app.

This stunt from Microsoft can mean anything. This might be a result of some mistakes or the company might in a mood to push the deadline further. It can also mean that Microsoft no longer wants people to know and it plans to kill it surreptitiously.

What do you think would be the case? Do let us know in the comments section below.
