We have all edited a video, while some do it for a living, others might have been stuck with it. The app you use for the job is critical as choosing the wrong one can adversely affect both the process and the outcome. Therefore, it’s imperative that you use the right one.
Reversing a video is a critical feature user look for in a video editing app. However, the apps available on Windows 10 do not offer you the feature directly. The process of reversing a video on Windows Movie Maker is tedious. You first have to click a snapshot of every frame, rearrange them, and then create another video by combining those.
If you looking for a simpler and quicker alternative, there are multiple apps on the Microsoft Store that will help you reverse the video in a single click. ‘Reverse Video’ is one such app that will help you reverse any video easily. The limitation here is that you can reverse videos shorter than 21 seconds on the free version.
We have divided the process into two parts for your better understanding, downloading the app and then reversing the video.

Since the ‘Reverse Video’ app is to be downloaded from the Microsoft Store, search for it in the ‘Start Menu’ and then click on the search result to launch the app.
Now, search for ‘Reverse Video’ in the search box near the top-right corner and then press
