How to Download Windows 10 1909 ISO File Directly from Microsoft’s Servers

Microsoft is finally rolling out the much awaited Windows 10 version 1909, November 2019 update to compatible devices all around the world. It’s an optional update, and is easily available to download from the Windows Update settings menu.

However, if your PC hasn’t received the update yet, you can always get the direct download links for the latest available Windows 10 update from Microsoft’s servers from the official Windows 10 Download website. The only issue is that when you visit the webpage from a PC running Windows 10, you get only the “Update assistant” and “Media creation tool” options to download Windows 10 ISO. But thankfully, it’s easy to trick the browser that you’re using a different operating system.

Open Microsoft Edge on your Windows 10 PC and go to the following link in the browser.
