How To Download Any Windows 10 Build With Media Creation Tool [Guide]

Anytime a new feature update for Windows 10 is released, the Media Creation tool that allows you to download Windows 10 is updated. The new version of the Media Creation tool allows users to download the current, latest version of Windows 10. This means that if you want to download and older feature update, the Media Creation Tool on Microsoft’s website won’t be much help. The ISO for older versions do still exist and with a little BAT file, you can download any Windows 10 build with the Media Creation tool.

This BAT file has been written by Reddit user aveyo. You can download it directly from its Pastebin link but we’re going to provide the script here in case the link stops working.

Open Notepad and paste the following in it. Save it with the BAT file extension.

Run this BAT file with admin rights. You will see a Command Prompt window open, followed by another window asking you which Windows 10 update you want to download. You can download final Redstone builds 1 – 5.

Once you select the build number, it will download the Media Creation tool to the same location you saved the BAT file to. You can now run the tool and use it to download the Windows 10 build you selected. The tool will let you update the current installation, or create a bootable USB.

All files are downloaded from Microsoft. This BAT file only helps you find the right file, and initiate the download. It is not providing the files nor is it modifying the ones that Microsoft has made available.
