Windows 10 Media Creation Tool : ISO and USB installation options - can I make a ISO from the USB version, or extract ISO to a USB?

I used the Windows 10 Media Creation Tool

I need to download the ISO. I need to use both the DVD (made from ISO) in some cases, and the USB in other cases.

Can I simply take the ISO, and extract it to a USB?

(I will use USB flashdrive for other purposes again, and when I need to have a USB Windows 10 stick, I can make it from the ISO again)

Or I need to download the USB - and create an ISO from it - then re-use the USB drive and then extract that ISO to the USB

Is any of this possible please?

You should be able to use it on either media, but the other device you are loading it on needs to be running Windows 10 already. The media creation link is to reload Windows 10 either from a licensed Windows 7 or Windows 8 source or from an existing Windows 10 install.
