Microsoft has a new update for Paint in the Windows Insiders Dev Channel. While there’s still no dark mode support promised, Windows insiders will be happy to know that the app now has a redesigned Image Properties dialog that looks just like the rest of Windows 11 user interface.
The Image Properties dialog lets you check file attributes, such as “last saved”, “size on disk”, and image resolution. You can also change the units (inches, centimeters, and pixels), color mode, and image size. With the latest update, the Image Properties UI features Windows 11-like radio buttons, input boxes, better fonts, and a nicer overall aesthetic. The screenshot below lets you compare the old variant to its modernized successor:
You can download the latest Paint update from the Microsoft Store. Note that the redesigned Image Properties UI is only available to Windows Insiders in the Dev Channel.
If you want to equip Windows 11’s Paint with dark mode support, check out the recently released Windhawk mod. It activates the dark theme in Paint with just one click, which makes drawing doodles and stickmen more comfortable at night.
Besides dark mode support, what do you want Microsoft to improve next in Paint? Let us know in the comments.
