The graphics software Microsoft Paint, which has been supplied since 1985 and Windows 1.0 together with the operating system, known as Paintbrush under Windows 3.1 and 3.11, has received a redesign and is being rolled out to the participants in the Dev Channel of the current Windows 11 Insider Program. A lot has changed visually.

An update of an optical nature

As expected, the user interface of the built-in app delivered via Microsoft Store, the redesign of which was announced by Windows boss Panos Panay in August, is based on the user experience and GUI of Windows 11, which will be launched on new PCs on October 5th . The new design language with more fluent design is adopted by Paint.

    The redesign of Windows and its in-house built-in apps, initially known as Sun Valley and Cobalt, has already been rolled out to apps such as Photos, the “new” Snipping Tool and the new Microsoft Store. In addition, the “Calculator” and “Alarm & Clock” tools have already been optically aligned.

    All revised apps, including the redesign of Paint, are based on Microsoft’s new design approach in the look of the new Windows UX Acrylic material. In addition, many of the new built-in apps offer dark mode for the first time.

    Further improvements are to follow

    The product manager responsible for the built-in apps, Microsoft calls these “inbox apps”, Dave Grochocki promises on the Windows Insider Blog further updates based on feedback from the Insider Program.
