Windows Movie Maker (known as Windows Live Movie Maker for its 2009 and 2011 releases) is a discontinued freeware video editing software program developed by Microsoft. It was a part of the Windows Essentials software suite and allowed users to create and edit videos as well as publish them to various services like YouTube, Vimeo, and OneDrive.

Movie Maker was officially discontinued on January 10, 2017 and was replaced by Video Editor, which is built in with Microsoft Photos on Windows 10.

Windows Me

The first release was included with Windows Me in 2000, but it was not available in Windows 2000, which was released months before the former, explaining its absence.

The first port of Windows Movie Maker was made for this. There is a video preview on the right-side. On the left, there is space to add Pictures, Music, and other Media. On the very bottom, there is the storyline.

Windows XP

Version 1.1 was included in XP in 2001.
