Paint for Windows 11 is getting background removal

Windows Insiders in Canary and Dev mode can now use the Paint App in Windows 11 to remove the background from an image.


  • Version 11.2306.30.0 of the Windows 11 Paint app adds a background remover, allowing users to easily remove backgrounds from images with a few clicks.
  • This update is for Canary and Dev Channel Windows Insiders only.
  • There is no word for anyone to find.

The Paint app in Windows 11 has just become more useful, helping you avoid using Photoshop for one thing. Now a beta release in Canary and Dev Channel Windows Insider is a new update to Paint, bringing the ability to remove the background from the image with a few clicks.

This new feature comes in version 11.2306.30.0 of the program, and to use it, you just need to put the image you want in the empty Paint Canvas. Then, after that, select the button to remove the new background under the Image section in the toolbar. You will have full control over your image and you will be able to use the selection rectangle to select the area to be removed. After that, you will see that you will get the theme of the theme you just selected.

These recent changes replaced the unexpected. Earlier today, Windows Insiders noticed that Microsoft released version 11.2306.28.0 of Paint. The brand displayed a banner above the app that contained the “Microsoft Confidential” watermark, indicating that its tools are private and that users should not share, discuss, or take pictures of the content. Microsoft employee Brandon LeBlanc quickly went to X (formerly known as Twitter) to show that this was an accident and that change would come to fix it.

Microsoft has been busy updating the Paint app over the past few months. Slowly but surely the program is becoming more comprehensive than it was a few years ago. Color has been dark for a few weeks now on August 16. There is no word on when non-Windows Insiders and those running a stable version of Windows 11 will get this. But, as usual, it usually takes several weeks to months before Microsoft releases such updates to the general public. It’s about gathering feedback and making sure things are perfect, even small things like this.
