Use drag-and-drop importing

Windows Me

Are you looking for a quick way to import your videos to your computer? As an alternative to using the Import feature (found on the File menu), you can import supported file formats by dragging them from My Computer into Windows Movie Maker. Here's how to do it:

  1. Open Windows Movie Maker.
  2. Open My Computer and navigate to your camera folder to select the files you want to import.
  3. Drag the selected files from My Computer into the My Collections folder in Windows Movie Maker.

Note   If you want the imported videos to be broken into clips:

  1. On the Windows Movie Maker View menu, click Options.
  2. Make sure the Automatically create clips box is checked. (If this check box is clear when you drag a video file into Windows Movie Maker, the video file will be imported as one clip.)
