WordPad app, which has been widely used for text editing for almost three decades is being removed by tech giant, as it will not be available in the future version of windows.
As reported by Mashable, Microsoft announced the news of deprecating WordPad, which has been auto-installed in each version of windows launched by the tech giant since 1995.
However, since 2020 the basic text editing app was labelled as an optional feature, enabling the users to deleted the application if they want to.
Microsoft also noted that two other software Microsoft Word and Windows NotePad can also be used as an alternative to WordPad, as these features can easily carry out the tasks that were previously done using the basic text editing app.
The official statement shared by Microsoft read, "WordPad is no longer being updated and will be removed in a future release of Windows."
"We recommend Microsoft Word for rich text documents like .doc and .rtf and Windows Notepad for plain text documents like .txt," added the statement.
It is pertinent to note that this is not the first time Microsoft has removed any feature, previously it has also killed several other classic features, when they turned outdated.
Microsoft removed its classic feature MS Paint a few years ago and in earlier this year the company also decided to remove the app for its voice-based assistant Cortana.
