How to burn CD/DVD ISO image in Windows 7

By  •  Windows

Windows 7 has built in support to burn ISO images, and so no external CD/DVD burning program is required to burn the ISO file.

To burn the ISO file, run Windows Explorer by clicking both the <Win> (the button with the Windows logo) and <e> together, or double click on the My Computer icon on your desktop.

From there, find your ISO image and right-click on the file. You’ll get a menu similar to the screenshot below.

Make sure you have a blank CDR/CDRW/DVDR/DVDRW in your optical drive’s tray, and click on the Burn disc image option.

Now you can sit back and relax while waiting for your ISO image to be written to your optical disc.

Sharing your folder will allow other users on the network to view, download and edit the content of the folder via the network. While this can be done using the GUI, it’s easier when using the command line, if you know how. This article will show you just that.

Assuming you have a folder in your c: drive called testdir, and you want to share it over the network with the name mydirectory, you can do that by just using the following command at the command prompt.

net share mydirectory=c:testdir

Once you’re done with the sharing and want to disable it, just issue the following command at the command prompt.

net share /delete mydirectory
