    I did that before I discovered Rufus and it was a pain in the tookus! My vote is for Rufus . . . especially the newer version 3.4. What could be easier? And it's free!
    In my opinion diskpart is easier. But I know the commands and if the user doesn't know the commands then a third party program probably will be easier for them.

    diskpart
    list disk
    select disk # <-replace # with the actual number of the USB flash drive
    clean <-this will erase the drive selected above. Maker sure it is the USB flash drive!
    convert mbr
    create partition primary
    format fs=fat32 quick
    active
    assign
    exit
    exit

    Now just copy the files and folders from the mounted Windows 10 installation ISO file to the USB flash drive.

    Why is this better than just format the UFD with FAT32?

    It ensures that you get a USB flash drive that is universally bootable in both UEFI and Legacy BIOS (or CSM mode) computers. It gets you back to a point where you have no questions as to exactly how the USB flash drive is partitioned and formatted.

    No necessary, Brink - Many thanks for adding this as an official tutorial (Now it's just that much harder for me to lose it...)

    Itīs not clear to me what the difference is. When I format with FAT32, the drive is initialized as MBR, a partition is created and itīs set as "active".

    The outlined steps just make sure that happens. Depending on how the USB was previously formatted, it may not turn out that way unless all the steps were done.

    Basically, just a precaution.
