InstallationIf If you do not have Movie Maker already installed on your PC computer, then you can download it for free on Microsofts website:


Note: As of Sept 2015, Windows 10 is not supporting Movie Maker. Other similar tools may be found in the Windows Store.


Here are your options for New Project, opening projects, and Importing.

If you press a push pin on recent projects, the project will always appear in the list.

Import from Device recognizes photo cameras and video cameras.

File Types:



Editing: Home Page Tab

Editing: Text Tools

Editing: Video Tools

Editing: Animations

Editing: Adding Music

Add music; MP3 file; free converters available online if your music is in a different format. *Note: MP3 is not iTunes format. If youd like to mute the volume on your video to add music, go to Video Tools, Video Volume, and drag the volume down.

PublishingOnce you are done, you can export or publish your video in a variety of ways, including straight to YouTube, digital file, DVD, and emailing the file. Your file will be exported as a WMV (windows media video) file. This will not play unless you use a Windows Video Player. To transfer it to another file type, you can use a free transcoder like HandBrake.
