Updating windows movie maker
RELATED: If you’re using Windows 7, there are Parental Controls built in.They’re not quite as fully featured as those that the Family Safety app offered, but they should do most of what you need. If you’re using Windows 7, you will need to download the One Drive app, but it’s all new since the one offered in Windows Essentials 2012 and it’s continually updated.Microsoft will end support for the Windows Essentials 2012 suite on January 10, 2017.If you use any of the suite’s component apps—Movie Maker, Photo Gallery, One Drive, Family Safety, Mail, or Live Writer—here’s what you need to know.
The app hadn’t really been updated in years anyway, so the end of support likely won’t matter much to anybody.
We’ll start with the easy stuff: All the features of the Family Safety app and One Drive have been built into Windows 8 and 10, so if you use either of those, you’re good to go.
In fact, if you are using either of those, you won’t even get the option to install the Family Safety app along with the suite.
Windows Live Mail is probably the most important component of Windows Essentials 2012 for you to replace.
Though you can still keep using it if you want to, we don’t recommend it.
