Pete Batard released the final version of Rufus 3.16 today.

The new release comes with a nice new feature, it disables TPM/Secure Boot/RAM requirements while making a new installation ISO-File if you choose to do so.

Rufus 3.16 Final is a small and free program, you can use to easily create a bootable USB Pen Drive. With this tiny program, you can make a bootable install medium, needed to clean-install your new Windows 10 or Windows 11.
