Microsoft Paint is here to stay, stated the multinational technology company on Monday.

This amid reports —and widespread objection —that the much loved program would be scrapped.

“MS Paint fans rejoice. The original art app isn’t going anywhere — except to the Windows Store for free,” Microsoft’s general manager for 3D Megan Saunders said in a blog post on Windows.com.

Micosoft initially included the 32-year-old Paint program on a list of “features and functionalities in the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update that will either be removed from the product in the current release (removed) or which are not in active development and might be removed in future releases (deprecated).”

The decision was met with an outpouring of love from the public, who did not want to see MS Paint killed.

“If there’s anything we learned, it’s that after 32 years, MS Paint has a lot of fans,” Saunders said in the blog post.

“It’s been amazing to see so much love for our trusty old app. Amidst commentary around MS Paint we wanted to take this opportunity to set the record straight, clear up some confusion and share some good news: MS Paint is here to stay, it will just have a new home soon, in the Windows Store where it will be available for free.”

Saunders explained that the new app for creativity, Paint 3D, would also be available for free with the Windows 10 Creators Update.

“It will continue to get new feature updates,” she said.

“In addition to the new 3D capabilities, many of the MS Paint features people know and love like photo editing, line and curve tools, and 2D creation are in Paint 3D. So, thanks for all the MS Paint love, keep the feedback coming via the Paint 3D app, and keep creating!”
