Microsoft brings Paint in line with other Windows 10 apps

Paint, Microsoft’s default drawing application that has been part of all Windows versions, will receive a large update. The interface of the software will be completely revamped and support 3D drawings and printers.

The new Paint version will also provide support for a stylus. The update brings the drawing software in line with Microsoft’s other apps that are also targeted at touch screens. The new Paint will contain ready to use 3D objects that can be fully customized. The default 2D shapes as currently in Paint will continue to exist.

Paint will also receive support for layers and the interface will be aligned with other Windows 10 apps.

On the 26th of October the new version of Paint will likely be introduced to the general public during a Microsoft event, at which the software giant will likely also reveal new Surface products for 2017.
