How to cut/trim or split video into multiple parts in Windows 10

I have used my smartphone’s camera to shoot movies about my family and transfer those files onto my Surface Pro 3. The tablet has been upgraded to Windows 10 Fall Creators Update. Some videos are very large or get a few black frames, and I need the professional documentary production to deal with them. I don’t want to install any third-party program. Is there any way to resolve the problem?

The Movie Maker is only working with Windows 8.1/8 and 7 version, while the native built-in Windows 10′s Photos app is suitable for doing a quick video editing. You could try the method to trim or split a video file, without modifying your original video.
