It seems there might still a way to get Windows Movie Maker on to your Windows 10 computer…

Submitted by Fiona Beal

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
Maker.

1. Get Movie Maker here http://www.windows-movie-maker.org/

2. Follow the prompts.

3. Accept
the License Agreement




4. Set the
destination folder





5. Select
the Start menu folder

6. Don’t
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!
