First: update your computer
With operating systems, whether Windows on the computer, or Android and iOS on mobile phones, we are used to the peace of mind of simply waiting for updates to arrive on our equipment. In principle, this comfort is priceless, but it is true that there are cases in which update as soon as possible It is something that can be very beneficial.

Go to Start and in the top bar type “Check for updates.” This will save you all the menu navigation and go directly to the section of the system where looking for new versions.

Second: download the ISO
The way to download will be through the Windows page itself, so you will not have to worry about possible security problems. It is not often that we know how to download Windows updates and versions because it is done less and less. Therefore, it is possible that you do not know or do not remember that the Windows website has the operating system file here freely downloadable.

After all, don’t forget that if something happens to your computer, you may very well need to reinstall Windows. And, in those cases, you will be grateful to have the ISO of the operating system stored on a USB memory or similar.

After that, go to the bottom area and, where it says “Download Windows 11 Disk Image”, click on the drop-down menu. Select the only option that appears and click on “Download”.
For now, the download will not start yet, but the system will ask you to select the language in which you want the Windows 11 ISO. Scroll down until you see Spanish or Español (Spain) and then click Confirm. The website will begin the validation process and will ask you to make a confirmation of what you are going to download. After that you will only have to press the Download button and the file will begin to download, which has a weight of 6.2 GB.
