One of the programs I sorely miss on my Windows 10 computer
is Windows Movie Maker (or Windows Live Movie Maker as it was later named.) I had
used it for several years before Microsoft discontinued it in Jan 2017. I
really missed using it in my classes at school.
As I searched the Internet there seemed no way to download this program
successfully. Until, one day, I came
across a YouTube video named Windows MovieMaker Full Version FREE!! ||2017
It seems there IS still a way to download and use this
program! It was worth a try! To cut a long story short…I tried following the directions
and IT WORKED! So I thought I would share it in case you would like to do the same.
So, let’s get started on the first part of getting Windows Movie
1. Get Movie Maker here http://www.windows-movie-maker.org/
2. Follow the prompts.
the License Agreement
4. Set the
the Start menu folder
select Quick Launch
It gets a
bit complicated after that, and for this part you’ll need to follow the video like I did. What I did is I
followed the instructions in the video step-by-step and just paused it while I tried to work out what to do! It
is a bit of an irritating video because it is only music and a demonstration – no verbal instructions,
but it worked. The video has had 209,000+
views so there are obviously a lot of
people wanting to get back Windows Movie Maker!
Try it. You
might be successful like I was!
