Windows 10 has one great new feature that has made life easier for some of us: you can now mount ISO images in Windows 10 without any additional third-party software!
I’ve tried mounting various ISO images and it works great so far. This feature has actually been around since Windows 8, but since most people weren’t worried about Windows 8, they didn’t know about it.
This is a very simple and straightforward process that I will explain below.
Mount ISO image in Windows 10 by right-clicking
The easiest way to mount an ISO is to simply right-click the ISO file and choose Mount.
Mount the ISO image in Windows 10 using Explorer
The second way to mount the ISO is to go to Windows Explorer and select the file. Windows 10 detects that it is an ISO image and displays another tab in the ribbon interface called Disk Image Tools. In the “Control” section, click “Connect”.
That’s all! After connecting the image, you will see that it appears as a new drive in My Computer.
By default, Windows 10 will simply select the next available letter when attaching the ISO image, but if you want to change the drive letter, you need to right-click on My Computer and go to Manage.
Then click “Disk Management”, right-click the drive letter and select “Change Drive Letter and Paths”.
Now just select the drive letter that you want to use for the mounted ISO image.
You can mount multiple ISO images in Windows 10 at the same time if you want, and you can also burn ISO images in Windows 10 without any additional software by clicking the Burn button in the above screenshots. You can read another post of mine if you want to create an ISO image. Enjoy!
