Once you checked your updates you have to follow these steps.

Step 3: Once downloaded go to Cortana Search Box and type Windows PowerShell. Once it shows up right click on the app and run it as administrator.
Step 4: Type the following command, ( Add-AppxPackage C: \Paint-WindowsBlogItalia ) and press Enter, now Wait until the app is injected.
Step 5: Once done tap on the Windows button or Go to the Start menu, You will see the Paint Preview app over there as seen in the image below. Don’t open it yet.
Step 6: Now open the Store again and go to the Profile >> Download and Updates >> Check for Updates. Once the process completes you will see a new app showing with the name Newcastle. You have nothing to do with it. ( Don’t install it or you will have to do the whole process again) Leave it alone.
Once rechecked. Simply close the Store and now open the app from the start menu. Here you go. Enjoy drawing some cool stuff on this latest Microsoft Paint Preview app. As this is the beta version yet, so when I was using this pen was not working and every time I tried to use it the app crashed, may be it works for you. Else it works like a charm. Enjoy and keep sharing the word.
