The next update to Microsoft's flagship Windows 10 computer software has been made available to consumers for the first time.
The Fall Creators Update is the fourth major upgrade offered to the operating system, which first launched in 2015.
The update includes Paint 3D, a new multidimensional version of the sketching app, which will no longer be a native app on the software for the first time in 32 years.
The Fall Creators Update also includes a new copy and paste tool which will enable users to highlight text on one device before pasting the content on another.
Story Remix, a new image and video editing app that enables users to quickly create short video montages using shared photos and video, is also part of the upgrade, which Microsoft's Terry Myserson said had been designed "to help you unlock creativity".
"Unleashing that creativity with new experiences, that is what propels us into the future," he said.
"And for us, those experiences begin with Windows 10, the most-popular version of Windows on the planet, with over 500 million devices in homes, businesses, and schools helping you create and play."
The update will be available to download for free by all those already running Windows 10, with the technology giant sending notifications to users once the software is ready to download onto their machine.
Microsoft will be hoping to avoid the controversies that have dogged updates of the past, where some customers have accused the company of "forcing" them to update to new versions of Windows, with many claiming their computers have crashed or been interrupted in the middle of a task as a result.
The tech giant apologised in the wake of the Windows 10 rollout and has since altered the way it handles updates, but industry experts still encourage users to back-up their computer before carrying out any update.
According to figures from September, Windows 10 is the second most popular desktop software among PC users, accounting for around 28% according to NetMarketShare.
The company's older Windows 7 software remains the industry's most popular operating system.
