The Media Creation Tool is a well-known utility from Microsoft to download "clean" Windows 10 ISO files and create a Windows installation media (DVD or USB). Each time Microsoft releases a new Windows version, it updates the Media Creation Tool to allow users to get the necessary files for the latest version. Some people might need to create installation media for older releases. That is where custom utilities come to play. MediaCreationTool.bat (extra points for a creative name) is one of such tools. It lets users download ISO files for any Windows 10 version, down to initial release 1507. Recently, a developer behind MediaCreationTool published a new version that can download Windows 11 ISO files and even bypass TPM requirements.
MediaCreationTool.bat is an open-source project that downloads files directly from Microsoft's servers (no custom questionable ISOs involved) to update your current system, create bootable media or ready-for-use ISO files. We have already reviewed it as an option for fetching the desired Windows 10 version. You can download the project from its page on GitHub. Note that you need Administrator privileges to use the script.
