How to Burn Disc Image from ISO or IMG file in Windows 10

information   Information
Windows 7 introduced a built-in ability to burn discs directly from ISO and IMG files using Windows Disc Image Burner. This built-in feature is also included in Windows 8 and Windows 10.

Windows Disc Image Burner can burn a disc image to CD, DVD, or Blu-ray.

This tutorial will show you how to burn a disc image from a ISO or IMG file to CD, DVD, or Blu-ray in Windows 10.

Note   Note
If File Explorer is not set as the default app for ISO and IMG file types, you will not see the Burn option in step 4 or step 5 below.

This can happen if you installed a 3rd party file compression program (ex: "7-Zip" or "WinZip"), and set it as the default app for ISO and IMG file types by mistake.

3. Do step 4 or step 5 below for how you would like to start Windows Disc Image Burner.

4. Right click or press and hold on the ISO or IMG file, click/tap on Burn disc image, and go to step 6 below. (see screenshot below)

6. Select the CD/DVD/Blu-ray drive you want to burn to from the Disc burner drop down, check or uncheck Verify disc after burning for what you want, and click/tap on the Burn button when ready to start. (see screenshot below)
Note   Note
Checking the Verify disc after burning option will have Windows verify the disc image after burning the disc, but it will also cause the process to take longer to finish.
