    Been discontinued since 2014.

    The Photo app in WIndows 11 (and to a more limited extent on Windows 10) is the official replacement.

    Other solutions are available.

    A good place to see a list of alternatives is

    That website does say (about windows movie maker)
    Windows Movie Maker is no longer updated and supported by Microsoft. Last version, included in Windows Essentials 2012, can be still downloaded from MajorGeeks. It is fully functional under Windows 10 too."

    So if you really want to use Movie Maker, then it looks like you can still, but maybe look at the list above (plenty of free open source ones too).
