Windows Movie Maker is an easy and free to use software to edit and create videos that is a built-in Windows application. But on the other hand, Many of Windows Movie Maker users complain of having very limited numbers of features provided by Windows Movie Makers.
I have compiled a list of 4 best and free to use Windows Movie Maker alternatives for all those Who are not happy with Windows Movie Maker for any reason. Before We proceed any further, I would like to clarify a few things, As you might know that there are several free to use programs available on the internet that are only designed to edit, cut, crop etc videos and as well as there are a lot of video converters that come packed with a built in video editor.
