How to remove / delete particular section of a video when using Windows Live Movie Maker

By -

When using Windows Live Movie maker one difficulty which I face is removing a particular section / trim from the time line. Movie Maker has no option where I can select a range and remove it. Instead it gives options for setting Start Point, End Point and Split which is only useful when you want to remove large part of time line. Problem with Start and End point is they do not allow me to specify range but remove section before and after that.However using the Split option you can drop a particular frame.

Below is a video tutorial which explains how you can trim parts of video and then join it later. Thus you save only thr trimmed portion of the video. The description is right after the video tutorial.
