How to Download Windows 10 ISO File Without The Tool?

Microsoft makes the Windows 10 ISO file available to everyone on the website to download, but if you are already using a Windows machine, it forces you to download the Media Creation Tool first. We will see how to download ISOs without the Media Creation Tool.

Microsoft’s Media Creation Tool is for Windows only. If you access the website from another operating system (macOS, Linux etc.), we will instead be directed to a page where you can download an ISO file directly. To do these direct ISO file downloads on Windows, we need to do your web browser as if using another operating system.

Click on the “Chrome Chrome OS” option and you will see a long list of pre-configured user tools to choose from, click the drop-down menu and select one.

For this to work, we select a different tool to detect Microsoft that you are using a non-Windows operating system. Anything not based on Windows will suffice, I chose “BlackBerry —- 9900”.
