Gallery: Microsoft Paint Preview Build 0.820.13407.0

Posted on October 9, 2016 by Rafael Rivera in Windows 10 with 31 Comments


Paint, the indispensable drawing tool, has been with Microsoft Windows since the beginning. Windows 1.0, for example, shipped with a licensed copy of ZSoft Corporation’s PC Paintbrush app that supported the drawing of smiley faces with a wide color gamut of, err, grays. It got replaced with a new colorful Paintbrush app in 3.0 and has steadily been tweaked ever since.

But as Brad wrote about yesterday, Paint is about to get its biggest update in decades — rumored to be revealed and released at Microsoft’s Windows 10 event on October 26.

We got our hands on an early preview build of Paint (0.820.13407.0) and will have a full write-up for you… as soon as we’re done doodling around with it. Here’s some screen-shots in the mean time.
