How to Download Direct Windows 10 ISO File From Microsoft’s Website

Installed Windows 10 few days ago with the ISO file which I downloaded with my Linux, little did I know Windows users don’t get the ISO file from Microsoft’s website till a friend complained about the link I sent to her isn’t showing up to download ISO file but a media tool. I ran some tests and found out they provide ISO file for non-Windows users and this provided a way.

To download the ISO file from Microsoft’s website, you will be using Firefox and install this addon User Agent Switcher, once you’re done and restarted your Firefox… goto Tools > Default User Agent > Edit User Agent then createNew User Agent with these values

Follow this link – Direct ISO Download

Description: My Linux User Agent
User Agent : Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Ubuntu; Linux x86_64; rv:39.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/39.0
App Code Name: Mozilla
App Name: Netscape
App Version: 5.0 (X11)
Platform: Linux x86_64

Leave other values empty then Ok, go back to Tools > Default User Agent then select My Linux User Agent. Go back to the Download page and get the ISO file after selecting the options you want.

What just happened above is just your Windows Firefox emulating Ubuntu Linux Firefox. Don’t forget to switch back to default User agent after downloading

Good luck! 🙂
