How can you get Windows Movie Maker on Windows 7?

Why is Microsoft Movie Maker no longer available to download at all?

When you google it the first website that comes up is a fraudulent website spreading Malware. And its EXTREMELY unprofessional that Microsoft doesn't put a stop to this or at least say something...

Also you can no longer download it within the Windows Essentials either. Its literally impossible to get now without getting some extra malware, adware etc.

Although support has ended, Windows Essentials 2012 programs will continue to work.

Windows Essentials 2012 contains the following programs:

Photo Gallery (Windows Photo Gallery 2012 Build 16.4.3528.331)

Movie Maker (Version 2012 Build 16.4.3528.0331)

Windows Live Writer

Windows Live Mail (Version 2012 Build 16.4.3564.1216)

OneDrive

Here are details on support for Windows Movie Maker and Photo Gallery that went away on January 10, 2017.

There are still places to get archive copies of the offline installers.

- Where to get a safe download of Movie Maker 2012?

It seems like Microsoft is hoping that people will transition to using the "Story Remix" feature which will be part of the Photos app in the Fall Creators Update for Windows 10. I don't know if they will have plans to make the app available to Windows 7 machines or not, but it seems unlikely that you'll have all the features unless you are on Windows 10.
