The Windows 10 Movies & TV app now lets you edit video, the new Windows Movie Maker?

27 mayo, 2021

Windows 10 unlike previous versions of the system has never had its own integrated video editor, like the flagship Windows Movie Maker, which along with other Windows Essentials apps were eliminated forever earlier this year.

Well that is about to change, since Microsoft has added certain editing capabilities to your Movies & TV app, the latest version of the player (10.17102.1391.0) now allows you to edit videos.

To use the new function you need to open a video from the application and press the new pencil shaped button while you are watching it, or by right clicking on the video and then on Edit.

However, what this does is open the edition from the Photos application where you can use the Story Remix functions to add text with effects, trim the duration of the videos, create sequences in slow motion, save a photo from the video and more.

It is not at all a complete editor with great capabilities and it is probably not going to replace the third-party alternative that the user is using at the moment. However it is a step forward to offer an integrated video editing solution in Windows 10, perhaps the beginning of the “new Windows Movie Maker” that many expect.
