    How do I find the path to the ISO file of a mounted virtual DVD.


    Downloaded Windows 10 Iso using a program from one of the links here: Windows ISO Version 1511 help needed - Windows 10 Forums, and I have the ISO mounted as a virtual DVD drive - but cannot find where the ISO has downloaded to.

    Is there an easy generic way - command line, Powershell command or other way to trace the file location of the source of a mounted ISO file?

    But if not in downloads folder, and not in the temp folders of the browsers I use, is there a command or registry key that shows where the file is located, without doing a search on *.iso over all my possible locations then checking each ISO file to see if it is the one mounted?

    I've moved mine, but if you right click the ISO and look at properties, it will show.

    I can't check the Iso, if I don't know where it is located from the Virtual DVD file manager entry!

    All I have is:

    Code:
    CD Drive (L:) CCSA_X64FRE_EN-US_DV5
    in File Explorer, nothing in Properties to sheow where the ISO originates from on the disk.

    Sorry. How did you get it mounted? Which link, exactly did you use to DL it? Did the site download it and mount it automatically?

    If you can post the exact link you used, I'll try it, and see where it puts it.

    Not exactly what I'm asking Dick - I can use search to find all *.iso files and work out by trial and error where the file is lurking, or probably find some Mount location in Regedit - if I search long enough,

    - BUT, is there an easy way to locate an ISO file which has been mounted in File Explorer, and you cannot remember where the file might be over several terabytes of storage?

    However, The Link is :

    Microsoft Windows and Office ISO Download Tool

    from : Windows ISO Version 1511 help needed - Windows 10 Forums

    The program, has save or open options (see derekimo's post above) - I guess I might have clicked open rather than save - and to save you the bother of doing the search, I found it in:

    C:\Users\MSUser\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\INetCache\IE\T5QLPI0M\Win10_English_x64[1].iso

    But I don't use Internet Explorer - the downloader apparently does though!

    I've searched high and low....if there is, I can't find it.

    Does Windows 10 allow one to check a box within Explorer settings: show full path... ?
