- 2It will show us if we have Movie Maker, and it will bring it up so that we can open it. If we don't have it, we'll see a link that will take us to the download site, as well. So that's two ways we can get it.Alternatively, go to the Search bar in the operating system, and type in "Movie Maker".Advertisement
- 6Right-click on it, go to "Open with" and select "Movie Maker". That will bring up the program and open up the movie file at the same time. This particular file is mp4. It will work with any video format when it comes to Movie Maker. It could be wmv, avi, mp2 and so on.The other way we can do this is to go ahead and search for that movie file.
