Create bootable usb windows 10 rufus

In the past, to install software on an empty computer or a computer that we wanted to format or restore, we used a CD or DVD. Now, many computers do not even come with a reader, besides being a slow method. The best way, nowadays, is to use a pendrive. It is fast, because the transmission speed is much faster, and it can also be reused.

Creating a bootable USB with an ISO image is basically making a USB flash drive have the ability to autorun on a computer without having an operating system installed on it. It is generally used to install software on that same computer. It can also be used to run an operating system without installing it (GNU/Linux, for example, allows it, but not Windows).

To do this, we will have to find a USB flash drive with certain requirements: it must be formatted in FAT32 format, its storage capacity must be clearly greater than the weight of the file we want to insert, and it must not have anything inside, or at least nothing that we would miss in case it is deleted, because, during the process, we will lose everything (it must be formatted).
