If you want to try Windows 10 on a separate PC, or you cannot wait to upgrade your existing PC, Microsoft has provided a way to directly download Windows 10 ISO (64bit and 32bit) as ISO file. This download works like any other files downloaded over the internet, so we suggest you better have a download manager in place which resumes back.
I have used it on Mac, and not sure if it works otherwise on Windows Machine because most of the time, you will be offered ISO based on your operating system. Using this method you can download Windows 10, Windows 10 N, Windows 10 KN, and Windows 10 Single Language. The links generated to download are valid for 24 hours. While the download will continue after that, but links will expire.
How to Directly Download Windows 10 ISO File
To do the same in Windows, make sure to use an agent switcher. Use a macOS or Chrome OS profile, so Microsoft offers you to download the ISO instead.
- Go to Official Windows 10 ISO Download Site.
- Select the version of Windows you want to download and click confirm.
- Next, select the language of the Windows you want to download. You’ll need to choose the same language when you install Windows. To see what language you’re currently using, go to Time and language in PC settings or Region in Control Panel.
- After this, you will get two links which will directly download Windows 10 ISO file to your computer. One link is for 64-bit, and the other is for 32 bit.
Now select one or both the links and download it on your PC. Using this tool, you can create Bootable Windows 10 USB Drive to either install on another PC or just handover it to your friends.
I wish Microsoft gives the direct option to download links instead of offering to use Media tool, etc.
