The Windows 10 Version 2004 (20H1) feature update will introduce a number of new features and background performance optimizations, including a readjustment of optional feature settings. Citingmedia, Paint and WordPad are now optional features. In the Windows 10 20H1 feature update, Microsoft uses drawing and writing boards as optional feature updates. Deployed in the newly released Windows 10 Build 19041, this version is rumored to be a candidate for the RTM version.

By default, many of the optional Windows 10 features are enabled and can be disabled through the Settings application in Windows 10. You can open the Optional Features page through the Settings application, which can manage certain enterprise applications or features, such as OpenSSH Server or WMI SNMP Provider.

With Windows 10, Microsoft has begun to turn some of its core Windows applications into optional features. After Windows Media Player, Microsoft has added Both Paint and Tablet to the Optional Features list, but unlike Media Player, both apps are still enabled by default.

This change does not remove Paint or tablets from Windows 10, but you can now disable both applications or remove traces of those applications from the Start menu and other locations. Microsoft Paint is 6.68 MB in size and the tablet occupies 6.25 MB of internal storage.
