    How to add basic software(exe files) to a Window 10 USB installer


    I made a Window 10 bootable USB installer. How can I add basic software(exe files) such as Chrome, Firefox, and Notepad++ so that when I install Window it auto install the other basic software too?

    That is a little complicated to do manually, you can use something like NTLite, but it is paid.
    Or you could run Patch My PC after setup, it downloads and installs all you mentioned.

    Another approach is to install windows 10 in a virtual hard drive, install all the software and make an image backup of the installation using Macrium Reflect Free, and simply restore image to other pc.

    In the end, it is only worth creating installers and using software installers if deploying to multiple drives. For a single device, it is just easier to manually install software after installation.

    You can create a custom Windows image which contains your preferred software. See Part Three in this tutorial: Create Windows 10 ISO image from Existing Installation | Windows 10 Tutorials

    Another method is to create a completely automated, custom Windows install media for unattended installation: Create media for automated unattended install of Windows 10 | Windows 10 Tutorials
