You can copy the Links and batch download them using a download manager like Internet Download manager on Windows.
For example make a folder call it Windows 10, inside it, make a new folder to keep all download UUP files. And download the uup convert tool and have it under the Windows 10 folder, later you need to extract the tool using an archiving tool like Winrar or WinZIP.
Once you have all the UUP files, it’s time to rename them. You will find a rename (.bat) file on the same page where you’ve copied UUP download links. Move the rename (bat) file to the UUP files folder and run it, no need to run it as admin unless you do not have those files under the root folder of the system partition.
Note: Also, SHA code is also given on the page, you can match them with the files you just downloaded to avoid any error caused by a corrupted file.
Cut all the UUP files and paste it to the UUP folder inside the tool folder.
This is how the tool folder looks like,

There is a tool goes by the name WimLimb, you can download from here and extract on your computer. Inside it, there is a “UUP” folder you need to copy all the UUP files to the folder so that the tool can read them.
Open the Convert-UUP file, and you’ve some options.
- Create ISO with install.wim
- Create ISO file with Install.ESD
ESD option will create a smaller ISO file because the compression is higher and the file is not encrypted. Follow the on-screen instructions, and it will take half an hour or so to complete the process.
Once the ISO file is ready, you can use any tool to create bootable USB or DVD.
Happy latest Windows 10.
