How do I get Windows Movie Maker for Windows 10?

Windows Movie Maker is a piece of video editing software that previously came bundled with Microsoft Windows, up to and including Windows 8. As of the Windows 10 release in 2015, however, Microsoft no longer includes Windows Movie Maker in the operating system, so Windows 10 users who are looking for Windows Movie Maker must download and install the program separately.

Unfortunately, Microsoft decided to suspend support for Windows Movie Maker in 2017. They also removed the installation files from their website, so it is no longer possible to download the installation files directly from the Microsoft website.

Does that mean you are unable to use Windows Movie Maker on Windows 10? Not at all! The only catch is that you have to download the installation file yourself.

How to download Windows Movie Maker for Windows 10

If you're on Windows 10 and you're looking for a way to use Windows Movie Maker, head over to the download page, where you can find the archived download links to the installation files.

Follow the instructions for installing Windows Live 2012, which includes Windows Movie Maker as one of the installation components. Depending on your computer and internet connection, downloading and installation should take anywhere between 5-15 minutes.
