What is an ISO File?
An ISO file or also called an ISO image is actually, an archive file that contains an identical copy or image of data found on an optical disc like CD or DVD. Or an ISO file contains everything or large file sets that are intended to be burned to an optical disk or would be written to an optical disc.
Indeed, an ISO image is an exact copy of a digital disc that you can archive an exact digital copy of a disc and then later use that image to burn a new disc. Nowadays most operating systems allow you to mount an iSO image as a virtual disc in this case all your apps act as if a real optical disc were inserted.

How to Extract an ISO File
Extracting an ISO file is quite simple. You can use third-party software like Power ISO, WinRAR or 7-Zip to extract the file. For instance, I am using 7-Zip to extract an ISO File. When you install 7-Zip, then all you have to do is double-click an ISO image to open it up and browse contents. You can now copy the contents from the ISO to any other folder simply by dragging and dropping.
If you want you can also extract the full contents of the ISO to your preferred folder. Right-click on the ISO file go to 7-Zip and select your perfect extract method. “Extract files” let you extract an choose the location for the extraction. “Extract Here” extracts the file to the same location as the ISO file is. And “Extract to” command creates a new folder in that location to which to extract
How to Mount an ISO File in Windows 8/10
Sometimes if you don’t have a CD/DVD burner installed on your machine and you don’t have media available like a blank CD or DVD, in this case, you can mount the ISO image or file as a virtual drive and access all files in the ISO image. When mounting an ISO file your computer will believe that the file is a real disk drive and you will be able to access the file from this virtual disk.
Fortunately, with Windows 8, 8.1 and 10, you can mount an ISO file without any third-party software. The process is quite simple, right-click on the ISO file and then click mount.
