Program to edit converted movies, VHS, DVD's

I have paid to have 8mm, Super 8 movies, old VHS tapes converted to digital thumb drives and a Seagate external hard drive.  I want to edit those movie files and save/download/upload (or whatever the term is these days) to a thumb drive to give as gifts.  I have researched the internet, but I must not be asking the question correctly because I can’t find what I’m looking for.  Do you know of a program that would allow me to edit the movies, VHS tapes, etc. that I have converted?  Thanks for any help you can give me, Diana Hoffman

If you are using windows (10 or 11) it comes with video editing features in the built in Photos app. If you’re on a Mac you could use iMovie. If you want a separate software, we like Filmora. It’s not free, but it’s inexpensive. Once you’ve made your edits, you save it as an .mp4 fille, then just copy that file to a thumb drive.
Here are a couple of my videos that might help:
