How to Use Windows 10
Media Creation Tool?

If your computer is experiencing trouble booting Windows 10, it can be a very stressful situation. After all, you need your computer up and running in order to get through most days. While it’s easy to panic in such a situation and assume you need to start looking for a new computer, Microsoft now gives you a better option. Through its Media Creation Tool, you can create a new version of Windows 10 to reinstall on your computer. Alternatively, you can use this process to create your own Windows 10 disk from a downloaded version of the operating system.

What is Media Creation?

The Media Creation Tool allows you to download a Windows 10 install file onto a flash drive (or DVD), so you can use it to reinstall Windows 10 should something malfunction on your computer or just to have a hard copy of the operating system.

What you need before you start

You will need a few things before you start this process:

  • A computer with internet access: If you are simply downloading the file for a rainy day, this can be your normal computer. If that computer is malfunctioning, you will need a separate computer.
  • A blank USB flash drive or DVD with 5 GBs free memory: flash drives are recommended so you don’t have to worry about whether your computer has the right drivers for the DVD.
  • A product key: this is the 25-digit code you received when you bought Windows 10. It allows you to prove you are using your copy of Windows.

You should also investigate the following information:

  • Is your version of Windows 10 32-bit or 64 bit?
  • Does your computer have the right system requirements for Windows 10 (if it wasn’t previously installed)?
  • What language do you want Windows 10 to run in?

Steps to create your install file

Step #1:

Insert USB (or DVD) and go to the Microsoft website to download the file

At the website, go to your Windows 10 download page and click Download tool now.

Step #2:

Open MediaCreationTool.exe

This should come with the downloaded files. When you click it, a window should open up.

Step #3:

Agree to the license agreement.

Step #4:

Choose to create install media

Choose this option instead of the upgrade option.

Step #5:

Choose your preferences

By default, the program will want to create a version of Windows that matches the one already on your computer. If you have different specification needs (such as 64-bit instead of 32-bit), deselect the box that says Use the recommended options for this PC. Once the changes are made, click next.

Step #6:

Choose where you want the file

Direct the program to put the install file on your USB or DVD

Step #7:

Create the file
