Photos app can no longer trim videos

Recommended Posts

I have used the Windows photos-app for a long time, for trimming my videos, but it no longer works. 

I have tried to write and call Microsoft, but they couldn´t help at all, which was very dissapointing. 

The guy in the phone didn´t really know anything, and asked to help me Google the problem. 

I trim the video as i have always done, using the photos app, and click on SAve as or Save a copy, but it just saves a 0-byte size file/trim, every time. 

So what can I do about it? 

I am running Windows 10. 

I really hope someone can help me. 

Usually the videos I trim are MP¤ and the saved 0-bytes trims are always MP4. 


Another weird thing is that the Photos app seems to be 0 bytes of size as well, when I go into see the specifications(see picture) 

Also on one of the pictures you can see the grey bar that usually gets filled out as the trim is saved, but that never happens anymore, it stays grey.

I have a lot of drive space and the files are not that big. 

The weird thing is that after I did a reinstall of Windows via Media creation tool, I was able to trim again. 

But then after some time, I get the 0-byte-trims again. 

I have tried to uninstall Photos and even after uninstall there are still 2 maps in the map Windowsapps, called Microsoft.Windows.Photos and the one of them contains 

the program Microsoft.Photos, isn´t that weird? I uninstalled via Powershell adm. 

There were originally 4 maps, but now 2, after uninstall. 


I attach a pic of the Windows Logbook showing the error, when I try to trim.

It got fixed on my computer after i went back to an earlier version of the Geforce Nvidia driver. But now I have the very latest one, and it also works for me. 

So maybe try an earlier or the latest driver from Geforce. 

It was a very specific one that caused the problems for me.

      I have an HP Pavilion p390nr which I bought for 2 very lame reasons the touchscreen being 1 of them. Sadly since the roll out of the creators update last year my touchscreen stopped working, it still showed in the device manager however hidden it was there but after various attempts with Microsoft on the line or trying the other options of fix its others were doing the drivers flat disappeared and now when you go to Control Panel\System and Security\System it says no pen and touch available for this display. I literally have no clue which way to go on this mess oh ya and in all the "fix it's" I've lost my Microsoft account 'live' attached to my one drive that I had every photo & over 20,000 songs my kids entire 20yrs my deceased horse no joke everything backed up to GONE no way to retrieve. failed factory reset everything tried messes this laptop up more pretty soon I'm going to own very expensive & ugly paper weight???
      Please the media created a purchase is worthless as apparently this laptop has to have its BIOS adjusted to use media from cd or something stupid I don't know it's not like any of the companies come with owners manuals apparently when your laptop goes down you're expected to have another one so you can hop online and look up what to do! I'm sorry I cry and get angry every time I have to try to figure this out because I had just scanned all the photos of my deceased mother for safe keeping and was so glad I did as I live in the area of the Thomas fires she was killed when I was 4 that was 40yrs ago and now I have NOTHING of her if there is anyway to retrieve my pc and my photos please I would forever be in your debt

      I read Andre Da Costa's Groovy Post article from Feb 3, 2016 on "How to Save Windows 10 Spotlight Lock Screen Pictures," and I was able to follow all the steps. However, the lock screen picture that so captivates me isn't included in the resultant list. Any suggestions about how to get it?
