    Which of the three choices


    I've downloaded Windows 8 and have been given three choices. If I take # 1 or 3, will that permit me to save that file to my present system and use it again if necessary? It would be nice to have a copy of that file. Advice will be appreciated.

    Make the ISO, & burn to DVD.

    If I save to the Desktop, at least the file in the meantime will be saved - correct? This is the bottom of dumb questions I know but with the way these things work at times, I'm thinking why does one want to risk anything.

    Also, if that file is not burned to a dvd, since & if it is saved in a directory, cannot one burn that to a dvd later?

    You want to save it as an ISO file so you can use it later, you can also burn the ISO to DVD or USB stick.
