Windows 10 may soon let you ditch Notepad and Paint
Feb. 4, 2020

Windows 10 users will soon be able to completely remove iconic programs such as Notepad, Paint and WordPad from their systems.


Notepad and Paint have come automatically installed in Windows since version 1.0 of the operating system was released back in 1985 while WordPad was automatically installed beginning in 1995 as part of the Windows 95 operating system.


While these programs provided users with a convenient way to take notes, edit documents and create graphics, none of them could be uninstalled from Windows.


However in Windows 10 Insider Build 19551, Microsoft has made these programs optional features that can be uninstalled if users wish through the 'Optional features' control panel.
