Microsoft has been separating some of the standard applications that have come with the operating system for a long time and now makes them available for download and updates from the App Store. This trend that started with Paint is now joining another application!
Microsoft now makes it possible to update some of the standard applications of Windows 10 through the Microsoft Store and distinguishes them from operating system updates. Paint’s migration to the Microsoft Store is complete. Now, with the release of Windows 10 build 21354 for Insiders on the Dev channel, the Snipping Tool joins this caravan.
At first, it was announced that Paint would be removed and Paint 3D, introduced in 2017, would replace it, but Microsoft’s announcement did not make users happy at all. Microsoft immediately backed down and announced that it would not kill Paint, but would even make it even better by taking it to the Microsoft Store. This promise finally came true about four years later and entered the store with a new icon for the app.
The Snipping Tool has now joined this list. In the latest developer version of Windows 10, it was announced that the Snipping Tool will be moved to its new home.
The Windows 10 test version released this week didn’t have many new features, but new options were added to the Windows 10 Settings app. For example, soon you will be able to adjust some settings of the webcam at the system level, such as brightness and contrast.
