The Washington Free Beacon article Washington Post article Microsoft Office ISO dataminers, or the Microsoft Office Open Document Format (ODF) application, is a free and open source software program for creating and editing document files in Microsoft Word and Excel.
The free and widely used software can open, create and edit ISO files on Windows and other OSes.
However, in an effort to encourage adoption, Microsoft has released an update that allows users to add a custom option to its application that allows them to edit and open ISO files.
To add the option, go to the Settings app on the Windows 10 Creators Update desktop.
In the Settings menu, click View, and then choose About.
From there, you can go to Windows Update and then click Check for updates.
In that window, you will see a box called the Custom Options.
In the Custom options, select ISO File Options.
Click the Custom option to add the ISO file to the list of available options.
As you can see in the screenshot below, Microsoft included an option for the ISO files that are opened in Word to be converted to an Open Document.
As of the release, the custom option that allows the user to open ISO documents in Word or Excel will only be available for those with the Office Insider program.
