How to Fix “Mount” Option Missing From Context Menu In Windows 10


Previously in order to mount an ISO or IMG file you had to use third party tools which you had to install first. Fortunately 8 and 10 supports mounting ISO and IMG files out of the box means you can now do it without having to install any third-party tools.

Mounting an image now is very easy all you have to do is right-click on the image and then click on mount. To unmount the ISO or IMG, simply right-click on the mounted drive in This PC, and then click Eject button.


The mount functions works without any problem but at time you might notice that when you right-click the mount option is missing, this is because the Windows Disc Image Burner is not the default program for ISO of IMG file types.

If the option is missing from the context in your Windows 8/10, follow the following procedure.
