The interface Rusfus is quite friendly-user.

Note:
To make a Windows installation USB (Windows 7, Windows 8.1 or Windows 10), you have to be sure that your USB flash drive appears in the "Device" area, and has a storage capacity of at lowest 4GB.
If you need to use a Windows ISO which provides either x86 and x64 versions simultaneously, you will certainly need to have an 8GB USB drive.

To get a Windows 7 installation USB, the MBR partition scheme for BIOS or UEFI is sufficient and you must choose the "GPT partition scheme for UEFI" for making a Windows 8.1 or Windows 10 installation USB which use UEFI system with a GPT disk.

Afterwards, you select the disc icon beside the Create a bootable disk box and select the ISO image from your PC or Laptop.
