How to burn an iso file to a disc in windows

Burning an ISO file to disc is easy with Microsoft’s simple tool

In this guide, we will cover step by step how to burn an ISO disc image using Windows 10, Windows 7, and anything earlier than Windows Vista.

If you’re not familiar, an ISO file identified by the .iso file extension (Example: Windows7.iso) is a disc image file, it’s basically a copy of every file that would’ve been on an actual physical disc such as a DVD.

ISO files can be quite handy to have and can be used without having to burn a physical disc which is extremely useful for devices that don’t have an optical disc drive, one such example is an Ultrabook.

Burning an ISO to disc in Windows 10

  1. Windows 10 uses the same simple method to burn an image as Windows 7, Simply right click on the iso file you would like to burn and click “Burn disc image”
  2. The Windows Disc Image Burner window will then appear, select the drive you would like to burn the iso image to and then click burn.
  3. Another way you can access the Windows Disc Image Burner is through the File Explorer, first select an iso file, then you’ll see the Manage tab appear at the top of the window. Open the manage tab and click the burn button to open the Windows Disc Image Burner.
