Grab Microsoft’s Windows Movie Maker offline installer before it goes away forever

In a few days time Microsoft will be killing off their Windows Live Essential apps, last updated in 2012, finally killing off some very popular apps such as Windows Movie Maker, which is still the benchmark for an easy to use but powerful video editor.

The apps will reach end of life on the 10th January 2017, and while Microsoft has made some efforts to replace these with Modern apps,  so far these have not all reached the same level of power and ease of use as the older versions.

Not all the apps are as useful as Movie Maker  – apps like Live Messenger and Live Writer has been superseded, and it seems unlikely we will need Windows Mail in the future.

If you have and enjoy these apps, and plan to use them on your next computer, you may want to grab the offline installers now and squirrel them away in your OneDrive.

You can grab the English installer here, and see a list for all supported languages at WinAreo here.
