Prior to the public release of Windows 11 later this year, Microsoft is teasing redesigned versions of some system apps to match the new UI. I recently saw the company deploy Windows Insider build 2200.132 with a redesigned calendar, calculator, and email app. The company is now seeing a redesigned paint app coming to Windows 11.
After introducing the Focus Sessions feature in Windows 11, Microsoft’s Chief Product Officer, Panos Panay, recently visited Twitter to showcase the new and improved Paint app. Panay shared a short video to showcase a variety of new tools coming soon to Paint. If you’re enthusiastic, check out the tweets attached just below.

As you can see in the video, the new Paint app in Windows 11 has a more modern and sophisticated look than the current version. The app has a new font picker, new brushes, and even a dark mode to improve the display. The new tool includes a quick picker that shows all the different brushes and their effects.It also comes with Floating font tool With new options such as placement and size.
Currently, the Windows 11 Paint app doesn’t seem to support more advanced features such as layer support, but it looks more modern than ever. In addition, this is the first major redesign of MS Paint a few years later. RIP Paint 3D?
In terms of availability, the new Paint app will be available for testing Windows Insider in the coming days. Panay didn’t mention the specific timeline for the release, but added that it was “coming soon.” So stay tuned for future updates.
