    Windows Disc Image Burner not available in Windows 8.1


    I'm trying to burn an .iso image, so I right-click on it and I expected a "Burn image" option, but it doesn't show up.
    Is my Windows installation bad or has this feature been removed for Windows 8.1?
    I can't find "Windows Disc Image Burner" anywhere in my Windows. I've had to install imgburn in order to burn the the iso.

    Hello Rodion,

    It sounds like the association for your .iso file may not be set properly. If you like, you could download and merge the .reg file for the listed .iso option to restore it's default association and registry entries.

    Hope this help,

    Solved!. Thanks Shawn, yours was the solution. And I've also learnt how to fix file associations, which is great.
