Dell ISO of windows 10 doesn't fit on DVED

I just downloaded the disk image (iso) of my new computer's operating system and when I try to burn the image to disk, it will not fit.  It is the Win10 iso for my specific computer and is 4.9 GB.  Why would they give you an image than cannot be put on a DVD.  Windows 10 does not take up that much space when you download it from Microsoft.

Downloaded the disk image?

How did you do that?

If you now have a file that ends with .ISO you have 2 options.

1 Buy a DVD9 Dual Layer DVD they cost for example $18 for a 10 Dual Layer DVD's. Aproximately 9 Gigabyte fits on this. I did this too!

2 Buy a 8 GigaByte USB key and use a tool like RUFUS to make the USB Bootable by selecting the file that ends with .ISO RUFUS will create this USB stick for you.

The tool its name is: '' Rufus - Create bootable USB drives the easy way "
