Simple video editing in Windows
Did you know that Windows has hidden embedded video editing functionality?
To edit a video file, open it in the Photos app.
You can do this right from File Explorer by right-clicking the video file, and then selecting Open With → Photos (1).
The video will open and play in the Photos app. To edit the video, click Edit & Create (2) on the toolbar.
You’ll see a variety of video editing tools you can use. Click a tool to use it.
For example, to cut a section out of a video, click Trim (3) in the menu.
To use the Trim tool, simply drag the two handles on the playback bar (4 and 5) to select the portion of the video you want to keep. You can drag the blue pin icon (6) to view what appears at that section in the video, or click the play button to play back the selected section of video.
When you’re done, click Save a Copy (7) to save a copy of the trimmed section of the video. To stop editing without saving your changes, click Cancel instead.
The Photos app places the edited video in the same folder as the original with a similar file name. For example, we edited a video named Tertitten.mp4 and received a video file named TertittenTrim.mp4.
