Create an ISO file for Windows 10

Unlike in previous versions of Windows, you’ll need to use the media creation tool to create an ISO file to install Windows 10. Make sure you have a license to install Windows 10, and then follow these steps:

  1. On the Windows 10 download page, download the media creation tool by selecting Download tool now, then run the tool.

  2. In the tool, select Create installation media (USB flash drive, DVD, or ISO) for another PC > Next.

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

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

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