Microsoft announced this ISO tool when Windows 7 came in, and it still works. It lets you create a bootable USB or DVD from an ISO of Windows 11/10 or any version of Windows. While the Media creation tool works, the biggest problem is that it gets stuck while downloading the ISO file, and if there is any problem, it starts downloading again. That’s very annoying.
Using Windows USB/DVD Download Tool, you can start USB installation a lot faster. However, you will have to download the ISO separately. Since Microsoft supports the download manager, it means you will be able to resume the download if there is any interruption.
