Here’s another Windows 8 tip.
With prior versions of Windows you would normally require third party software in order to mount ISO files as a native drive in Windows Explorer. This changes in Windows 8 with its ability to mount ISOs without additional software.
All you need to do is the following:
- Locate the desired ISO file,
- Right click the file,
- Click on “Mount”,
- The ISO file should appear as a new drive in Windows Explorer.
Mind you, this will only work for ISO files stored on your computer and not ISO files stored on a network location.
Of course, if you unmount an ISO file you simply need eject it by doing the following:
- Locate the desired drive,
- Right click the drive,
- Click on “Eject”,
- The drive should then disappear.
Couldn’t be simpler!
