    It will eventually be replaced with Paint 3D. I've got the creators update insider build*, and MS Paint is still accessible, but not listed in the start menu. Basically, what they're trying to do is phase it out using their new Paint 3D app and won't be updating MS Paint except for maybe security patches in any updates for Windows.
    See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deprecation

    * The insider's build is likely the one they aim to push in Autumn, but they need it fine tuned by community feedback from insiders. Insiders get first access before the final update version becomes a public update.

    Ah, so it will just sit on my computer and I can still use it. Regardless of updates. (obviously this computer will become slower over time, but yeah).

    Between M.S. Paint and Paint 3d, I Like M.s. Paint a little better. Still trying to figure out Paint 3d.

    Ah yes, Microsoft Paint. I think the last time I used it was in the fourth grade.
    Long live the spray can setting.

    Wait...what? Outlook Express was in Windows 10 before the Fall Creator's update? I thought they got rid of that with Windows 8...

    Anyways, you have your answer now. It'll still be available, even after the update.
