    Find the Store tile. It has a blue tile background and the Store tile often flips over to show you information about different applications that are available. Your images and writing will be different than mine because you have different searches and apps downloaded. The one thing that you will see that will be the same is the Windows icon in a shopping bag. If you do not have the store tile pinned to your home screen, swipe left to find it in the apps menu. Tap the icon to open it.

    We now need to choose a video. Choose a video or make one by entering the Microsoft Lumia Camera application, change your settings to video and film a short film, then come back to learn how to trim it. I will choose this 20-second video.

    To trim the video, there are two circles; one at the start of the video, and one at the end of the video clip.

    The two sets of numbers show where the two trimming circles are. Right now, the first circle is at the 1-second mark of the video and the end circle is at the 20-second mark of the video

    If you move the end circle, the second time will change. As you can see, it is now at the 14-second mark.

    If you move the first circle, the first time will change. As you can see, it is now at the 4-second mark. So, we can identify exactly at which points we want to trim.

    There are two main reasons that people use a trimming application. The first is to tidy up a video. People are often not prepared, or at the start of the video there's some disruption, the camera isn't focused, etc. Sometimes at the end of the video, the camera is on longer than it needs to be. Some people will cut the start and the end off just to tidy up the video process. You can do that just by moving the two circles.

    The other reason people use a trimming application is to select one specific part of a video. If a video is very long, or there's something very exciting and important in a video and you just want to have one part of the video, you can trim almost all of the video so there are just a few seconds. Now the two circles are very close, and if we trim the video like this it will trim all of the start and all of the end, leaving a few seconds of video footage. It is very important to remember that once you trim this video, it will save it as it is, and you will lose the original version.

    Once you're happy with it, save it by pressing the save icon, which looks like an old-fashioned floppy disk in a white circle. This will save the trimmed video.

    If you don't want to save the video, just press back to get out of the application. Don't save it if you want to keep the original.
