By default, Microsoft installs the applications it develops on the computer equipped with the Windows 10 operating system. However, most users disturbed by this situation say they don’t want applications to take up space on the computer unnecessarily. The software giant has made a decision that will please these users. It was decided to no longer include the photo editing software in Windows as standard.
Windows 10 does not include Paint by default
With the release of Windows 10 Creators Update, Microsoft introduced two apps called Paint 3D and 3D Viewer. The company, which has added these two applications to computers by default, gave up its decision and announced that Paint 3D and 3D Viewer will no longer be included in Windows 10 installations.
First noticed by Insider Previewer users, this innovation became apparent with Microsoft’s announcement. The company stated that those who have already installed the applications will not be affected by the new decision. He added that both apps will remain available in the Microsoft Store.
Microsoft summarized its decision as follows:
“3D Viewer and Paint 3D are no longer pre-installed on clean installations of the latest Insider Preview releases. Both apps will remain available in the Store and will remain on your device after an operating system update. So if you upgraded your computer normally, these applications will remain on your list.
Paint 3D, which has a more modern and only interface, appeared as a revamped version of the classic Paint. The application, which focused on the production of 3D content, had editing features that were not included in the classic Paint. Microsoft wanted the application to be a major contributor to Windows users and expected it to be one of the most preferred in this field.
Likewise, both tools called 3D Viewer and 3D Objects were added to Windows by default with the Creators Update release. Microsoft gave up this step. It left the choice entirely to the users whether to install applications or not.
