    I'll see what other options are out as I'm not convinced the "Rufus way" is the only way. I could be wrong, but...
    Not trying to convince anyone of anything.

    It's simply a fact that the Media Creation Tool will only download the current release.

    As mentioned, besides Rufus, there is Heidoc, and a couple mentioned TechBench.

    I like Rufus because it downloads faster by not using a browser, and it will burn the ISO as well after download.

    Does this option require Rufus?

    Thanks.
    I would think you could use whatever you want to make an installer.

    I save every windows Iso and its MCT, and I rarely make installers anymore, but I recently used Rufus and it worked as it should.

    The important thing that matters is that you have the Iso file, what you do with it afterward is your business.

    But I will say this, it is very hard to add pictures to your replies now.

    Bootable media is good to have if you can't boot into Windows, or you need to clean install.

    Really? I didn't know that ... I only mentioned that in my post.

    The fact that someone asks a question or doubts an answer isn't cause to get huffy. Relax.

    And I don't see a reason to complicate things with the addition of Rufus if not needed. I'm about the "keep it simple" method. Less hassles.

    Relax. We're allowed to ask questions and disagree.

    I would think using Rufus is a very fast method of making a installer

    2, 3, clicks, done.

    So it's (Rufus) not needed but you can if you want. That's my point... it isn't needed. Thanks.

    I'm relaxed.

    Seemed like you didn't understand that was the case in post #3, or you didn't read the OP's original post.

    You don't need Rufus. And you can just download the Media Creation Tool and create a bootable USB drive sans (without) Rufus.
    Should be clear now.

    As long as everyone knows that the current MCT can only download the present version, we shouldn`t even be discussing such old thoughts

    LeeLaw even stated that in his opening thread.
