Mac or PC? If mac, iMovie can do a lot and comes free with the system. The downside is that its a memory hog and makes these huge project files. Like, HUGE files.

Final Cut is a step up, but still pretty intuitive, and it doesn't have those stupid project files. It's also non-destructive, so it doesn't mess with the files you import, which is something to watch out for with iMovie. Always make copies and save a backup of the original when editing with iMovie.

Video Pad Editor from NCH gave me good results back when I was playing around with video. They have a huge suite of programs that are pretty good but can get a little intrusive - they try to make you install them all. Ignore their prompts to go premium or whatever, you don't have to upgrade or pay them anything. When the "trial period" is over if you go to uninstall it gives you the option to stay with the free version which works pretty damn well anyway. If you give them a shot I'd recommend creating a new system restore point before you download and install, it's actually a pretty good idea any time you start trying out freeware. That way if you accidentally install everything or something goes haywire you can just roll your computer back.

Yeah I can't give any PC related advice.

It may be, but I have no time or inclination to make videos all that often and don't want to pay for a program I will use very sparingly.

I will take a look.

I'm using OpenShot on a 10+ year old laptop. It's pretty easy to work with and it's free.

OpenShot Video Editor | Free, Open, and Award-Winning Video Editor for Linux, Mac, and Windows!

It's what I'm using for my ATS videos: https://youtu.be/jDHOmdaKKlg

I used to use GoPros software that comes with any new camera you buy but isn't very good. I've since moved onto Windows Movie Maker because it's free for PC. Allows you to do the basic but it has been good enough for anything I have used it for. And I've put out some pretty successful vids using it. I plan to get a drone soon which I will probably step up to Adobe for.

Premiere Elements for $70

It's the lite version of Adobe's software but still really full fledged and it's pretty easy to pick up. Has a ton of support behind it so if you can't figure something out it's pretty easy to find an answer or a tutorial.
