MS Paint – after 32 years of venerable service is being retired.

For the last 32 years, I reckon all Windows users have used the built in program Paint.

You may have converted one file type to another, made a quick sketch, removed a background or even changed colours.   It was always there for you, waiting in the wings,  ready for the moment when you thought ‘I know I can do that in Paint’, but never could…….

We, of a certain generation,  will mourn its loss yet rejoice in its retirement, just like ‘Clippy’ the Windows little Helper.


If you need some help, advice or training on an alternative – get in touch.
