New wrinkle for some. I download the .iso file for installing IP Version 1709 Build 17025 yesterday.
Windows10_InsiderPreview_x64_en-us_17025.iso
The file size is 4.4GB or 4,599,232KB, too large to fit a DVD-R or DVD+R by about 0.2GB or 200KB, have to use a DVD+R/DL [Dual-Layer] disc. They are a bit harder to find in stores, especially in smaller cities or towns.

Why not just use a USB flash drive....then use Rufus to make it bootable.

Because some computers' BIOS can't boot the Thumb drive. I actually use both methods depending upon need at the time. The numbers I gave do change what size devices are needed for the more-than 4GB file.

yeah I noticed that. Had to use a DL medium to create a DVD (what a waste of space).....

I have three computer that will not boot from USB drives but they also won't install Windows 10 or Windows 8 (due to a different CPU command set). They are simply too old, Win7 is the latest I can install

As they are only temp ISOs, why not create a partition large enough to accommodate them, or us an external, and then mount them for the installation

That is entirely possible IF Windows is running and I've done exactly that at times. Having bootable media is great when Windows isn't running for whatever reason. Working on computers one has to be resourceful.

Bassfisher I've never created a bootable flash drive. What's is the correct procedure, format the USB Flash drive Fat32 bootable first, then download the ISO image to the flash drive?

Rufus is my preferred tool as well. It simply works (I use the portable version)...
