In this guide, we will show you how to merge audio and video on Windows using the native video editor. By following these steps, you’ll be able to seamlessly combine your audio and video files.
Please note that this guide is specifically for users of Windows 11 and Windows 10. While we used a Windows 11 device in this demonstration, the process is very similar for Windows 10. By following these instructions, you should be able to achieve the same results on Windows 11 and Windows 10.
What Do I Use?
Thankfully, there is no need to use any third-party video editing software to merge your video and audio. If you are using Windows 11 or Windows 10, you can take advantage of the built-in video editor app called Windows Photos or Windows Video Editor.
With the native video editing app, you can easily merge your video and audio tracks together without the need for any external tools free of cost.

Downsides Of Windows Video Editor?
Editing high-resolution videos, such as 4K videos, can sometimes result in slow performance or even cause Windows Video Editor to crash. However, if you are editing 1080p or lower resolution videos, Windows Video Editor can be a reliable choice.
While it may not be suitable for heavy-duty editing tasks, it is a capable tool for basic video editing needs. By selecting the appropriate video resolution settings, you can ensure that your editing experience with Windows Video Editor is smooth and efficient.
Additionally, it’s worth noting that video exports are limited to a maximum resolution of 1080p. Higher resolutions are not currently supported.
