i have the old and best windows movie maker, but it doesn't work with windows 10, what can i do?

  • I'm pissed off at the beast !!! After working hard to document a journey, I suddenly find myself unable to save it. Windows 10 is a rip off !!!

    • I have Windows 10 on HP ENVY 15ae004nl Notebook I CONFIRM that I have installed Windows Essentials 2012 with “” Photo Gallery ”” and “” Movie Maker ”” including… !!!!! EVERYTHING WORKS PERFECTLY FOR ME… (including updates) Note that I had formed the pc for a problem on the internal hard disk, then I subsequently reinstalled the operating system and, of course, I had to reinstall Windows Essential 2012 too…. How did I do ... ??? I had previously saved the application to be installed on a DVD (which I still have)

  • windows essential no longer available from 10 January 2017? the lack of movie makers weighs a lot, it's just a shame. At the next purchase I will definitely switch to apple !!!!
