Windows Movie Maker

For Windows users, the best choice is Microsoft's Movie Maker, which is a part of Windows Essentials software suite and offers the ability to create and edit videos as well as to publish them on Facebook, Vimeo, YouTube and Flickr. When importing footage into the program, a users can either choose to Capture Video (from camera, scanner or other device) or Import into Collections to import existing video files into the user's collection. The accepted formats for import are .WMV/.ASF, .MPG (MPEG-1), .AVI (DV-AVI), .WMA, .WAV, and .MP3. After capture, any clip can be dragged and dropped anywhere on the timeline. Once on the timeline, clips can be duplicated, split, repositioned or edited. An AutoMovie feature offers predefined editing styles (titles, effects and transitions) for quickly creating movies.

Tips: Windows Movie Maker has not been updated since 2012 and is not officially supported on Windows 10. It was officially discontinued in January 10, 2017 and it was replaced by Windows Story Remix in late 2017.
