Purpose

Use the manufacturing tools to deploy your Windows customizations to new Windows 10 devices. Learn how to:

  • Combine your customizations, plus languages, drivers, apps and more, into new Windows images.
  • Modify these images either from a manufacturing mode for a familiar Windows experience, or from a command line for quicker changes that can be automated and scripted.
  • Install images onto new devices. Choose whether to use compression to balance disk space verses device performance. Use flashing tools to speed up the final manufacturing processes
  • Capture your customizations into the recovery tools, helping your customers get back up to speed quickly.
