    Hence, the suggestions to save the money and make your own. Quickly. Easily. For free.
    YES.
    In post #47 "Yes i know. I bought the DVD so I have something to wipe my SSD with if my usb flash drive should break, so its not a problem."

    In summary
    Creating USB install media has been recommended so that the current version of Windows 10 that matches your computer is available.
    You can also create a USB Recovery drive that includes the system files of your computer.
    Creating system image backups has also been recommended.
    It's unlikely all three recommendations are likely to break.

    It might sound time consuming but what's important you are in control of the most recent versions especially if completed after a new feature update and it's known to run as expected.

    That's the beauty of the MCT. You can use it to make the USB drive AND the .iso. Anytime there is a new build, I update my flash drive and download the .iso to store on my NAS.

    For clarity, you have to redownload mct each build upgrade as it is version specific. It would be more obvious if they gave a name to each one eg instead of mediacreationtool.exe, it was named (say) mediacreationtool1709.exe.

    Would be nice if the name contained the build. I believe it shows in the properties of the .exe file, too.

    Starting with the MCT for 1703, it won't let you upgrade or build the media if there's a newer version available. Instead it tells you to download the latest MCT and gives you a link to do so.

    I have a full set of the old MCTs and when needed have used them to deliberately create ISOs for 1607 and earlier. They still work (even for 10240).

    Original Windows 10 Theme in Customization
    Hey Folks: I recall when the TP builds first appeared, a theme quite close to Windows 8.1 was used (with borderless windows and such). Is that theme still available for use with build 10240? I think that looked the best.
