1. Download the Media Creation Tool from Microsoft’s website. It is available for free and weighs around 18MB. Install it on a PC with an internet connection. Note that you need to have Administrator access on the PC you are downloading the files. You will also need to accept the terms and conditions of the Media Creation Tool before progressing.
2. After installation, you will be asked to either “Upgrade this PC now” or “Create installation media for another PC”. Choose the “Create installation media for another PC” and click “Next”.
3. You will have to select the language, edition and architecture of the Windows 10 you want to download. Click on “Next” after choosing the option.
4. You will be given an option to choose the media for downloading the files. If you use a USB flash drive, ensure that it has a capacity of at least 8 GB. Or you can create an ISO file, which you can burn to a DVD later. As per our trial, the “USB flash drive” option is faster to download as well as install. Click “Next” after selecting the USB option.
5. You will see the download screen with the percentage of files downloaded on the PC. Wait until the download reaches 100%.
6. Once finished, you will be greeted with a message – “Your USB Flash Drive is ready”. You can also make multiple copies of the downloaded files to other flash drives.
Now plug-in the USB flash drive to your Windows 10 computer. Open the folder in the drive and select the “Setup” file to start the installer. Upon opening, select the “Install updates now” option and Windows will start installing the updates. Wait for the installation to finish and after that, you are on the latest version of Windows 10.
