How to Create a Windows Image File

by Joshua Bailey

Image files allow you to place many different files, file types, folders (or any other file you can think of) in one file. There are many different programs that can make an image file, and many of the programs work on a Windows machine. These three programs do it very efficiently.

Step 1

Download and install one of the image file creators that can be used on a Windows machine. These are all either free or offer a free trial.

Step 2

Open "Imgburn" and click "Create image file from files/folders." Click the "Source" button and a new window will appear. Select the files that you want to make the image file from and click "OK." Click the "Destination"icon and select a place to save the image file. Click "OK" and click the green arrow to create the image file.

Step 3

Open "Nero" and click "Data Burning." Click the "Destination" drop-down menu and click "Image Recorder." Click "Browse" and select a place to save the image file. Click the "Add" button and select the files and folders you want to make the image file from. Click "OK" and click "Burn" to create the image file.

Open "Magic ISO Maker" and select the files and folders you want to make the image file with from the file explorer that is located on the main menu. Click the "Save" button and select a place to save the image file. Click "OK" and image file will be made.
