Editing Videos on Windows

Clipchamp is a great tool for editing videos on Windows 11 and Windows 10 PCs. It’s free for personal use, but if you want additional features, such as cloud storage and unlimited access to stock content, you’ll need to upgrade to a paid plan.

If Clipchamp isn’t your cup of tea, give the third-party Wondershare Filmora 11 a go instead. If you’re working with other types of media in Windows 11, take a look at using your photos as a screensaver or learn how to take a screenshot on Windows 11.
