You Can’t Download Windows 10 ISOs Anymore… Or Can You?

It’s not too late to claim your free upgrade to Windows 10, but if you do, you’ll notice that Microsoft has made a small change: you can’t download the Windows 10 ISO directly anymore. Go to the downloads page and you won’t see the ISOs anymore.

As of now, your only option is to use the Media Creation Tool. Or is it?


As it turns out, you can actually visit the Windows 10 Tech Bench Upgrade page if you really want the ISOs. The Tech Bench Upgrade is a comprehensive bundle with a lot of documentation, including Installation Guides and Quick Start Guides for those who aren’t tech-confident.

We recommend using the Media Creation Tool if you can as it’s easy, straightforward, and reliable. However, there are cases when ISOs are necessary, in which case you can use this method to download them.

Is there another way to download Windows 10 ISOs that we missed? Let us know in the comments! We’d appreciate it, big time.
