How to Add a Lower Third to Windows Movie Maker

by Nicole Vulcan

In any video project, adding a lower third -- also known as a caption or title -- can be helpful for identifying people included in the video. Since this is such a vital part of creating a video that is useful and credible, Windows Movie Maker makes it possible to add this feature to your video using its "Titles and Credits" function.

Step 1

Place your cursor on the video Timeline where you want your lower third to appear, then click on that section of the Timeline.

Step 2

Select the "Tools" function, then select "Titles and Credits."

Step 3

Click on the link for the section where you want to add the lower third.

Step 4

Type the text that you want to appear in the lower third into the "Enter text for title" box.

Click "Add Title." Your lower third will appear in the viewer screen over the video that you have selected.
