MS Paint has been recently redesigned and the tesdollarser on the Windows Insider channels continues. However, support for dark mode will be offered with future updates of Windows 11.
Microsoft began testing the redesigned Paint in September with users on the Dev Channel. The new Paint is a modern take on the classic Windows app and apparently builds on the old codebase. It has not been ported to the USP platform, so the overall user experience will be familiar to users.
Paint is still in development and some design features are currently missing, such as dark mode. Fortunately, Microsoft is working on dark mode support and a script was created by developer Ahmed Walid.
You can see Paint’s dark mode support from the screenshots. This mode applies to new basics such as the enhanced toolbar, rounded color palette, drop-down menus, brushes, color picker, or pop-ups.
We don’t know when the iconic Paint app will get official dark mode support. Trials are still underway by the company and we may see changes in the final design.
As always, Insiders will be able to test this updated Paint app with dark mode in early 2022 and we can expect it to be available to everyone along with the regular version in a few months.
