    Just what I was thinking. It is still there in current (16241) insider preview.

    Hopefully we can just copy mspaint.exe and the .mui if it is removed (currently just deprecated according to the table above)

    You can also get the mspaint classic installer from Winaero

    Can someone please explain to me the rationale behind killing Paint or screensavers? I genuinely don't understand.

    Even if just a few Windows 10 users worldwide use those programs/features, what sense is there in removing them? They're not vulnerable to attacks or malware like Windows Sidebar/Gadgets.

    I use Paint nearly every day to do simple cropping and cutting. Paint.net or the default "Photos" app are not nearly as fast as Paint in opening or saving files. And don't get me started on that rubbish "Paint 3D" crap.

    As for screensavers, I also use a screensaver. I think it looks cool and adds an extra layer of protection (I have mine set to start after 5 minutes of inactivity, and after starting, any movement on the mouse or keyboard triggers the lock screen).

    So in summary, can someone please enlighten me as to why these features are being removed?

    Are we talking about Backup and Restore (Windows 7) here?

    Probably. Remember, this is Microsoft. They constantly remove features people use just so they can push their "apps" agenda.

    If someone purchased 10 over a year ago, there were other things that have been removed. I don't see how it is legally possible to cripple or change a product that was already acquired. I believe it won't stop here, they will continue to remove other features, you have no idea what will be left.

    They already tried to get rid of it before so I'm not surprised.

    Yes I think it was Windows 8.1(?) where they deleted the Backup and Restore, although I think the System Image function survived at that point. Then they brought it back in Windows 10 - my guess is that it was so people who used Windows 7 and made a backup with the built-in function could restore their files.
