    Windows ISO Downloader is a free program for Windows that allows you to download Windows operating system ISO images from Microsoft servers.

    Downloading an ISO image of the operating system that is already installed on devices you are working with is always a good idea in case you need to reinstall the operating system or repair it.

    Microsoft for whatever reason makes it difficult to grab official ISO images of versions of Windows that it supports currently.

    [​IMG]
    You have to dig deep to find official and direct download links of Windows ISO images on Microsoft's website.

    One of the better solutions is offered on the company's Techbench website, but it only highlights downloads for Microsoft's newest operating system Windows 10.

    We have revealed in the past how you can modify the page using development tools that are part of all modern web browsers to display ISO download links for Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 as well.

    Windows ISO Downloader

    Windows ISO Downloader is a free program for Windows that does more or less the same. It displays the available operating systems that you can download ISO images from -- those are Windows 7, Windows 8.1, Windows 10 and Windows 10 Insider Preview -- and loads a form that looks identical to the one found on the Techbench website.

    [​IMG]
    Note: Windows ISO Downloader does not need to be installed but it does require the Microsoft .NET Framework 4.6.1.

    First, you are asked to select the edition that you want to download. The selection may be overwhelming at first if you don't already know which edition you want to download.

    Here is a quick overview of what is offered:
    • Windows 7 SP1: Starter, Home Basic, Home Premium, Professional, Ultimate
    • Windows 7 SP1 N / K / KN: same as above
    • Windows 8.1: Windows 8.1, Single Language, Professional LE
    • Windows 8.1 N / K / KN: same as above
    • Windows 10 Threshold 1: Windows 10, Single Language, Education, N, Education N, KN, Education KN, China Not Genuine.
    • Windows 10 Threshold 2: same as above
    • Windows 10 Threshold 2 Updated: same as above
    • Windows 10 Insider Preview: Client Insider Preview, Enterprise VL Insider Preview, Education Insider Preview, Core Single Language Insider Preview, China Only Insider Preview
    • Windows 10 IOT Insider Preview
    After selecting the Windows edition that you want to download as an ISO image, you get to the language selection prompt.

    It lists all the available languages supported by that edition of Windows. The program displays download links for 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Windows afterwards.

    You can start the download directly from within the application with a click on a download button, or use the copy link buttons instead to copy it to the clipboard.

    The latter may be useful if you want to use a third-party program for the download. Since downloads are large, it is probably a good idea to use a download manager for these.

    Closing Words

    Windows ISO Downloader does not reinvent the wheel but it makes the manual process of downloading ISO images from Microsoft more comfortable.

    If you have troubles getting the download options to display on the Techbench site, you may want to give the program a try as it is a suitable alternative for that.

    Download:Windows ISO Downloader.exe
    Version: 1.02
    Release Date: 22 May 2016
    Requirements: .NET Framework 4.6.1

    The Windows ISOs aren't that buried on the Microsoft website anymore, they're right on the Downloads landing.

    This, however, can be extremely useful for one feature in particular. The Microsoft website requires you to enter your Windows 7 product key before being able to download the ISO. Does this bypass it?

    Awesome, I hope they don't change this. I've been looking for a trusted and clean Windows 7 ISO that can be used on any PC.

    Just reporting in to say Norton File Insight does not like this software. File removed for medium risk reputation. Temporarily disabling Norton for the usage of this program, as I do think it is a false positive.

    The newest update includes Office 2007 and Office 2010 ISOs. Just downloaded every ISO and I'm keeping them for a rainy day. Amazingly useful software.

    So should I download every single possible ISO? WIndows 7, 8.1, 10 Office, Ect? Whats different between Office 2007 and 2010? Should I get both 32 and 64 bit versions?

    Hopefully they can have XP and Vista ISO downloads sometime.

    I don't know, download the ones you need. I avoided OEM, N, etc versions. I downloaded Windows 7 HP/P/U x64, 8.1 x64 and 10 TH2 Updated x64.
