Windows 8: How to Mount and Unmount ISO Images

Posted April 15, 2011 by Rob Rogers in Windows

A lot of software packages are downloaded as an ISO image to be burned to CD or DVD. Windows 8 lets you mount these files so that you can use them without having to burn them to disc first.

1. Right-click the desired ISO image.

2. Select Mount.

The mounted image will now show up as a removable storage device when you go to Computer. Now it acts just like a burned disc as it allows you to install the software package normally.

To unmount the image, go to Computer and right-click the mounted image. Select Eject.
