As a few of you may know, MSPaint has been replaced with Paint 3D. I absolutely hate this and am incensed by it. Does anyone know how I can get back MSPaint?

Just copy over MSPaint from a Windows 10 build that has the old style in.
Just copy it to system32

in HKLM or HKCU, create a REG_DWORD DisableModernPaintBootstrap in key SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Applets\Paint\Settings and set it to 1.

Thank you very much. The "Settings" key didn't exist, so I had to create it, but it still worked.

Can't they just provide them both, by default? There is so much legacy code in Windows, that I don't get why they need to remove access to legacy paint. I see that it would be probably accessible on the Server 2016 as legacy calculator is still there, but why disable an utility which many people still use? It is an excellent tool for very basic editing, and drawing (for example pixel art). Sure, there is which is superior in many ways, but it is external application which needs to be installed and normal users will probably don't use layers and other extra stuff.

I didn't want the Paint 3D either & found online a suggestion & it worked (for me)
In build 14971 all one has to do is uninstall the MSPaint app & Paint 3D will be gone & MS Paint will be back!

In build 14986 I have the regular MSPaint after my upgrade from b14971, either MS fixed the Paint 3D or it carried over from my previous build that I upgraded from.
