It was announced today that Microsoft marked MS Paint as a deprecated program, which means it's not going to be developed anymore and, eventually, might be removed from Windows in future releases. Sad dummy Source
As a pixel artist, and for having used it since my childhood, this breaks my heart.

Yes, it will be available in the Windows Store at some point soon, for free - I heard the news. I have it disabled though, I just don't like it. I reckon this journal is still relevant to those who want older versions or simply don't wan't to fuss with Windows Store.

I've seen people asking around if someone had these older versions, and I provided it to a few myself - only my personal WinXP version, in Portuguese, though.
But today I've done something different: I got the Win95, Win98 and WinXP versions in English and will be providing it for everyone who wants/needs it, in this post! :D (Big Grin)
(You should be able to get them by yourself if you want to fiddle with these OSs ISOs, too. I got most of them from WinWorldPC)

Edit: I was able to get Windows Vista and 10 versions too, the W10 one in English, Portuguese and Japanese! Woooo! Also, I've included a brief tutorial of how to backup your own mspaint if you're using newer Windows versions.
Edit 2: Added Internet Archive download links!
Edit 3: Added Windows 7 version - thanks, stu-arts!
Edit 4: Updated Windows 10 version with French (fr-FR) translation - thanks, Entrivax!
Edit 5: Changed Google Drive links.

There are a few links for each, but you just have to download one - they're simply mirrors, just in case.
They're in .zip format, you should be able to extract them without problems in any folder you like.

note: there are a few additional Windows DLLs with it. I couldn't make it run without them.

You might have to run them in Compatibility Mode. I tried to get the WinME version too, but I couldn't make it run on my PC, so I left it out. If I get other versions, I will post them here as well.

HOW TO BACKUP YOUR OWN MSPAINT (Windows Vista, 7, 8, 8.1 and 10)
Thanks to user icecapman10 on reddit, I figured out how to backup newer versions of MS Paint. Yay!
  1. Go to C:\Windows\System32
  2. Copy mspaint.exe and the folder of the language you use on your PC (eg: PT-BR, en-US, en-GB, ja-jp...)
  3. Paste both in a new folder, anywhere you want
  4. Go into the language folder and delete everything but the file mspaint.exe.mui
  5. You're done, enjoy!


I hope that helps! Lots of love from a fellow pixel artist and mspaint fan. Heart 

If any of these links gets broken or is wrong, please let me know! Just leave a comment on this post and I should see it.
(Yes, I reckon can provide these, as they're becoming abandonwares. Plus, it's mspaint, harmless lol)
