New Windows apps and games
Microsoft's Media Creation Toolkit downloads the newest version of the Windows 10 operating system only. You can install it right away on the system it is executed on, save it as an ISO, or create a bootable USB medium.
The Media Creation Tool Bat batch file adds an option to Microsoft's tool to download any previous Windows 10 feature update version as well. Just put the batch file in the same directory as Microsoft's official tool, and execute the batch file afterwards.
You are asked to select the Windows 10 version you want to download before Microsoft's tool is started and the process continuous as usual.
You can check out my review of the entire process here.
