Microsoft has updated the Paint app for Windows 11 in the Dev Channel. The update brings update dialogs and more changes with itself. Microsoft has provided details about the changes in an official blog post for the popular app.
The updated Microsoft Paint app features dialog boxes for actions matching Windows 11 design. The update also brings improved support for screen readers and ability to select a secondary color by shift-clicking on a color swatch. Check the full changelog provided by Microsoft below.
We have updated the “Edit Color”, “Resize and Skew”, and other dialogs to match the style of the new Windows 11 design and fit in with the new Paint app backdrop.
We’ve made additional fixes in this release as well:
- Shift-click on a color swatch will now select that color as your secondary color.
- Fixed an issue where text boxes would move unexpectedly when using IME.
- Fixed an issue where some dialogs were not properly localized in Hebrew, Dutch, Norwegian, and other languages.
- Improved support for screen readers.
