UPDATE: Video Editor won't be included in Microsoft Photos in the next update. Instead, you're able to convert MP3 to video with image using Clipchamp, a free app to create and edit videos.

Step 1. Open Microsoft Photos, click "New video" button in the top-right corner and create a "New video project".
