Paint revives in a big way in Windows 11, and it does so by crushing a Paint 3D that wanted to replace it
Chúpate esa, Paint 3D. That’s probably what Paint would be thinking if it could think of something. The mythical tool for drawing becomes an integral part of Windows 11 again, and it also does it with a redesign and with a particular revenge towards that Paint 3D that precisely posed its disappearance.
This is what Panos Panay has indicated in a message with a small video clip in which some of the new options of a Paint are seen that do not change radically but what attention, gets rid of the option to edit the current file in Paint 3D. What was said. Suck on that one.
Paint’s victory over Paint 3D is now overwhelming
Paint is a legendary application from Microsoft. It was one of the tools that was included with the original version of Windows 1.0 in 1985, and since then it has always been part of the different versions of the operating system.
Here’s another @Windows 11 first look. This is the beautifully redesigned Paint app, coming soon to Windows Insiders. Can’t wait to see your creations! #Windows11 #WindowsInsiders pic.twitter.com/jiKyfqQFUV

Its evolution in fact has been parallel to this system, but in 2016 to Microsoft it occurred to him raise a very special option for this application: that of being able to paint in 3D. That actually made Paint it will be renewed in an important way and a version specifically focused on that type of scenario would appear: Paint 3D was born.
The new tool became increasingly important to Microsoft, which in fact seemed to want to load up Paint. The news it seemed goodbye to this mythical tool, but shortly after Microsoft clarified that it was not a goodbye, but at most a see you later: the plan was not to include it by default in Windows, but continue offering it in the Microsoft Store.
In the end in Redmond they did absolutely nothing. They kept Paint as part of Windows 10, and the application coexistió con Paint 3D, and it seemed like everything was going to go on like this forever, but it was not so: last March Microsoft stopped including Paint 3D and the 3D Viewer in your Windows 10 update, something that seemed to make it clear that not many people were using those tools.
That Panay ad is undoubtedly the confirmation of Paint’s final victory over Paint 3D, especially when one looks at a detail: although there are no major differences with the current version, there is a notable one: the button that referred to Paint 3D has disappeared.
