  • On the Windows 10 download page, download the media creation tool by selecting Download tool now, then run the tool.
  • In the tool, select Create installation media (USB flash drive, DVD, or ISO) for another PC > Next.

  • Select the language, architecture, and edition of Windows, you need and select Next.

  • Select ISO file > Next, and the tool will create your ISO file for you.

  • To use the ISO file as a backup for your PC or on another PC, burn it onto a DVD.
