It’s been 32 years, but Microsoft is saying goodbye to Paint, the archaic but loveable graphics program. After more than three decades, the fall update of Windows 10 will officially take the image editing application out of development. Though never really a feature-packed tool, Paint was a popular option for anyone needing to add shapes, color, or nearly illegible, mouse-guided scrawling to an image or blank page.

The initial version of the program dates back to 1985, when it was released with Windows 1.0. The most recent iteration of the program will come in the form of Paint 3D, as part of the fall Windows 10 Creators update, the BBC reported.
