Instead of Windows Movie Maker, try using 4K Slideshow Maker which is a free downloadable application for Windows.

To make a slideshow, upload or drag-and-drop your stored photos. You can also add photos from Instagram with this app.

Add music, customize the slideshow and to save it, choose from many formats, including iPad, Mac or YouTube video.
