Microsoft’s Media Creation Tool, which is available for download on the company’s website, makes creating a Windows 10 Bootable USB Drive a breeze.
Create Bootable Windows 10 USB Drive
Create bootable USB drive by downloading and running the Media Creation Tool from Microsoft’s download site. You’ll also need an empty USB Flash drive that isn’t in use by anyone else.
Furthermore, for 32-bit version downloads, the USB Flash Drive should have a minimum capacity of 4 GB and 8 GB for 64-bit version downloads.
The download tool from Microsoft will detect the correct version (32-bit or 64-bit) for your computer (You can also manually select the required version).
