First step for installing Windows 10 on your PC is to download Windows 10. Microsoft provides it’s own utility (Media Creation Tool) for downloading Windows 10. However, Media Creation Tool doesn’t allow you to copy or save download links of Windows 10 ISO files. And you will always land on Media Creation Tool page while trying to get Windows 10 ISO download links from Microsoft website.
Another benefit of getting Windows 10 ISO download links is that you can use a download manager to download ISO with high speeds. So, in this tutorial we are going to show you how to get Windows 10 ISO download links from Microsoft website.
Get Direct Download Links for Windows 10 ISO from Microsoft Website
Microsoft website detects the OS type from the browser and redirects you to relevant download page. So, if you are using Windows PC, it will redirect you to Media Creation Tool page and if you are using mobile browser (unsupported OS), it will send you to another page. That another page has links for downloading Windows 10 ISO files.
So, in this tutorial, we are going to trick Microsoft website into redirecting to download links page by telling it that the browser we are using is Android mobile browser. We are going to use Developer Tools in web browsers for this purpose.

Copy Windows 10 download link from below and paste in Chrome address bar. You will be taken to the page where you can find download links for Windows 10 ISO files. After the page has loaded successfully, you can close Developer Tools.
Step 3: Select Edition and Language
After you close Developer Tools in Google Chrome, the same download page will open in full window. Just do not refresh the page.
Select the Edition of Windows 10 that you want to download from available options and click on Confirm button.
Next, select the Language for your Windows 10 ISO files and click Confirm again.
Step 4: Get Windows 10 ISO Download Links
