In this process, we will tell you how to download Windows 10 ISO on your computer directly from the Microsoft server. This method will make sure that you do not get anything unwanted or harmful downloaded along with the Windows 10 ISO.
Recently, Microsoft has stopped users who have Windows PC or Mac to access the official Windows 10 ISO downloading page. Instead, Microsoft redirects them to the Windows 10 Media Creation Tool download link in place of ISO downloading page. Microsoft is forcing the users with the computers that can run the Media Creation Tool to install media creation tool.
You can overcome this difficulty if you pretend to have a device that does not run Media Creation Tool such as some Mobile device.
You can pretend to be another device in two ways. The first option is to use the Developer Tools that are present in your browser. The second option is by using a browser extension emulator.

Now, all you have to do is refresh your web page and you will now be redirected to the Windows 10 ISO download link.
Option 2: Using the Chrome Mobile Emulator Extension
To download Windows 10 ISO pretending to be a mobile device you need to have a mobile emulator extension. For this, you can download a Mobile browser emulator for Chrome that is easily available on the internet.
After you are done installing the emulator, open the Windows 10 download link available on the Microsoft page and then you will be automatically redirected to the Media Creation Tool page. Keeping the same page open, click the Mobile browser emulator icon present at the top left side and choose one of the mobile phone portrait options.
When you do this, a new window will open up. This new window will load the same download page that you have kept open already but it will be now opened as a Mobile device. Since Media Creation Tool cannot be installed on the mobile phone, Microsoft will allow you to download Windows 10 ISO directly.
Now, to begin downloading Windows 10 ISO on your computer, you need to follow the prescribed steps below:
- In the Windows 10 ISO download section, choose the option Select Edition and choose Windows 10.

Keep patience and wait till you get a prompt asking you to select the language of the product.
- In the Select, the product language section, choose one and select the English language. You can also select any other language that you prefer other than English if it is available there and click the Confirm option. Now, you will again be redirected to a Validating your request page. You are required to wait patiently till you get to see the download page.
- Then, you will be directed to the Windows 10 ISO downloads page. There you will get two options to install it. One for the 32-bit Windows 10 ISO download and the other one for the 64-bit Windows 10 ISO download. Select any one according to your computer specifications.
Shortly after this, the Windows 10 ISO download without Windows 10 Media Creation Tool will begin on your computer. Once, the download completes on your computer you can also create a bootable Windows 10 USB flash drive from it.
You will also see a small message saying that the link is valid for 24 hours from the time of creation. This message will also display the expiry date and time of the link. So, in case you are planning to keep the download
