Each time a new version of Windows 10 is released, the Media Creation tool is updated to allow you to download the Microsoft operating system. However, the new release does not allow users to download earlier versions of Windows 10.
Below we will create a small .bat file that will allow you to download any build of Window 10 with the Media Creation tool.
Open the notepad (we recommend the Notepad + +), copy and paste the following code. When finished, save the file with the .bat extension.
