No, Microsoft isn’t removing paint with Fall Creators update

Microsoft recently released a list a day before, that included list of all depracated features and removed features in Windows 10 fall Creators update. According to the list, the following features are removed from the Fall Creators update:
  • 3D Builder app

  • IIS Digest Authentication
  • Outlook Express
  • Reader app
  • Reading List
  • Screen saver functionality in Themes
  • Syskey.exe
  • TCP Offload Engine
  • Tile Data Layer
  • Trusted Platform Module (TPM) Owner Password Management

The features that would be depracated following the fall Creators update are:

  • IIS 6 Management Compatibility
  • IIS Digest Authentication
  • Microsoft Paint
  • RSA/AES Encryption for IIS
  • Sync Your Settings
  • Screen saver functionality in Themes
  • System Image Backup (SIB) Solution
  • TLS RC4 Ciphers
  • Trusted Platform Module (TPM): TPM.msc and TPM RemoteManagement
  • Trusted Platform Module (TPM) Remote Management
  • Windows Hello for Business deployment that uses System Center Configuration Manager
  • Windows PowerShell 2.0

As Microsoft is deprecating MS Paint  from Fall Creators update, many people are circulating news over the Internet and sharing memories from Paint they Created. Actually, Microsoft has introduced 3D Paint in Windows 10, which is a UWP app and an improved version of Paint. By deprecating traditional MS Paint, Microsoft is not removing Paint immediately, but it is not guaranteed that this would be available in future versions of Windows and has not been in active development. This has happened earlier with MS, when they deprecated BITSAdmin in Windows 8 and removed it in Windows 10. So people, enjoy your favorite program before it is removed completely-though it has time. You can see this article for more information:

Edit: A blog from Microsoft says that MS Paint would be available as a UWP app in the store from when it is removed. See this for more information.
