MS Paint is No Longer in Microsoft Windows
MS Paint is no longer, and will not be in any updated, future or new versions of Microsoft’s Windows operating system, at least starting with Microsoft’s next Windows 10 update release this Fall. Our favorite program where we used to, and still do digitally, and electronically draw, and paint, and resize, or crop photos in, is still in existence though, Millennials, – just not in its full, regular and normal capacity that we have come to know. To obtain it, we just have to go to Microsoft’s Windows store at a cost of no charge.
That being said, we can breathe a sigh of relief that the paint software program, and now app that we grew up on, Millennials, will be around forever as we know it. We can even switch from MS Paint’s simpler form to the more expanded Adobe Photoshop software program, and then back to MS Paint again, or stay with, and, or, just stick with MS Paint’s old-school classic format, or both, depending on what we want to do, and what program we want to use, and like to use.
Think about it! Who could imagine life without MS Paint? And what would we do without it Millennials? Luckily, we won’t, and don’t have to bare the thought, and the agony of life without it because MS Paint is here to stay, and only part of a recent trend in this day, and age where software, and other technology companies are changing their products that we have known to love, as a way to phase them out in order to fit with, and adapt to modern times today, but while still making good old software programs available to everyone, including those who really love them, and would still want them available to them, and everyone, if they were asked.
Nonetheless, when the newest, and latest version of Microsoft Windows is released this Fall, we will not be able to click on start in the bottom left corner of our computer screens, or the magnified window in the same location, and go to the letter W, and click on Windows Accessories, and then go to the word, and program, Paint.
However, Microsoft putting it in its Windows store for free, saves the day, because we can become used to a new way of obtaining, and using the popular software program, and now app by going to the Microsoft Windows store on a Windows Surface, or other Windows phone, or tablet depending on what type-of-phone, Windows Laptop, or other laptop computer, or desktop computer we Millennials might have.
In other changes that are meant to fit aforementioned trends, adapt to modern times, and accommodate results, and changes depending on how well the feature has done, its longevity, and how effective it has been for the program or device it is on, or in, respectively, some of us, Millennials, might have an iPhone, or other Apple product, and if that is the case, we might be currently experiencing, or have also experienced changes in the location, and accessibility of the apps available on the iPhone with each new version of Apple’s iPhone such as with the compass app feature.
This also includes the hardware, appearance, look, placement and elimination of other certain attributes, and characteristics of the device.
For instance, Apple has done away with the headphone jack in its iPhone 7, and iPhone 7 Plus models, and instead has replaced it with AirPods, and wireless lightning connectivity. The headphone jack is supposedly coming back in Apple’s iPhone 8 model when the smartphone is also released this Fall, however so that consumers can charge their cell phones, and listen to music at the same time – a feature that was lost when the headphone jack was initially removed from the iPhone 7, and iPhone 7 Plus. This will supposedly be done using a 3.5mm headphone jack, and lightning adapter, and via the same lightning port at the bottom of the iPhone starting with the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus model.
Google has also just done away with its Google Instant feature in its search engine that allowed search results to come up, and show in Google’s search box as users typed in what they are looking for. For the search results to show up in the search box in the Google search engine, and on the company’s homepage, computer users must now only, and still press the enter key when autofill selections after search terms that are typed into the search box, show up in the search box.
Looking toward the future, we await to see what other exciting changes, companies do with longstanding software programs, apps and features we have grown to like, and love like MS Paint.
