Paint app for Windows 11 update for Windows Insiders brings updated dialogs and more

Written By published November 30, 2021

Hello Windows Insiders, today we are beginning to roll out an update to the Paint app for Windows 11 to Windows Insiders in the Dev Channel. This update includes a good set of changes and improvements we think the community will enjoy!

We have updated the “Edit Color”, “Resize and Skew”, and other dialogs to match the style of the new Windows 11 design and fit in with the new Paint app backdrop.

We’ve made additional fixes in this release as well:

  • Shift-click on a color swatch will now select that color as your secondary color.
  • Fixed an issue where text boxes would move unexpectedly when using IME.
  • Fixed an issue where some dialogs were not properly localized in Hebrew, Dutch, Norwegian, and other languages.
  • Improved support for screen readers.

As always, we love getting feedback and will be looking out for your thoughts, so share your suggestions in Feedback Hub (under Apps > Paint).
