How to Download ISO for Windows 10

Microsoft distributes updated Windows 10 ISO disk images each time a new version of the operating system is published, allowing users to do clean installations or build bootable recovery environments.

The suggested method for installing Windows 10 is an ISO file. However, getting it and utilizing it could involve some complicated processes.

A single “.iso” file on your computer houses an ISO image, which is a sector-by-sector replica of the Windows DVD. Then, you may mount this ISO file as a drive letter in Windows, burn it to another DVD, make a bootable USB drive, or extract its data using 7-Zip.

In order to make bootable media that may be utilized as a recovery environment for troubleshooting or conducting clean installations of the most recent version of Windows 10, ISO images are useful. They may also be used to create virtual computers running Windows 10 in Hyper-V, VirtualBox, or VMware.

To get the most recent ISO image or make a bootable USB drive, Microsoft advises using their Windows 10 Media Creation Tool (MCT).
