How to Download Official Microsoft Windows 10 ISO Files using Fido—If you want to reinstall Windows 10 on multiple devices, having an installation file like ISO can be helpful. However, the process of downloading Windows retail ISOs isn’t the most customer-friendly, as you need to go through lots of unwarranted hoops to get there, despite the file being publicly available for free. For this purpose, users might be tempted to download Windows 10 ISO files from external sources, but there is a risk of altered OS content.
Enter Fido, an open-source PowerShell script designed to automate access to the official links of Microsoft Windows retail ISOs. It’s mainly created for Rufus, but also works as a standalone program. This script can save you time and energy in downloading Microsoft 10 ISO files by automatically redirecting you to the link, and also ensuring the OS content is valid and authentic.
