How to trim videos on a Windows computer
You may have some movies, videos stored on your computer or cell phone to watch whenever you want. But storing the whole movie will take up a lot of space. When you just want to watch some of your favorite clips over and over again, you can use some video cutting tool to get those clips.
Editing video is now much easier than it used to be, thanks in large part to the free video editing tools you can find on most basic devices.
Option 1 Trim video with Windows video player
Step 1 Open the video you want to cut with Windows video player
Step 2 Click the Edit button (shaped like a pencil) at the bottom right of the video player window, then click Trim in the menu. The video should open in the Photos application.
Step 3 Drag the white Start and End points marker in the video timeline to determine the video clip you want. You can only choose one segment each time.
Step 4 Click "Save a copy" to cut and save the video segment you set.
