How Do I Know If I Have Windows Movie Maker on My PC?

By Leonardo R. Grabkowski

Windows Movie Maker, the newer version of which is known as Windows Live Movie Maker, is a free utility offered by Microsoft as part of the Windows Live Essentials pack. This pack contains Windows Live Writer and Windows Live Messenger. You can download the pack entirely or select specific programs from it. If you want to download the program, check to make sure it's not install on your PC first.

Step 1

Click on the Windows Start button, then click "Control Panel."

Step 2

Click on "Programs" then on "Programs and Features." This brings up the list of installed programs on your PC.

Step 3

Scroll down near the bottom of the list. The list is in alphabetical order. Look for "Windows Movie Maker" or "Windows Live Movie Maker." If you do not see the program in the list, you do not have it on your PC.

Download the Windows Movie Maker from the Windows Live website, if you do not have it and would like to acquire it.
