    I'm confused. I thought Microsoft Paint won't be available for Windows version 1709. Yet I can still use it when I right click an image and press Edit. (FYI the program is still located in the System32 folder). Don't get me wrong, I'm glad that it's still there, but did my computer upgrade properly?

    Thanks for the reply Shawn =) Awesome Avatar picture too by the way. The Aliens get winter too just like us Humans on earth lol.

    I remember reading what you posed before, it's awesome Microsoft kept the program. Yet the thing is that they put it in the Store for if I want to download it. But I never went to the Store to get it; it stayed in my System32 folder. Yet also it does have the "‎September ‎29, ‎2017" modification date, which is pretty new.

    Does your System32 folder have the same info too?

    Okay cool thanks for checking. Kinda strange how Microsoft 'kept' it in that folder. Probably forgot to remove it? lol. Anyways, thanks for replying.
