There is one built into Win 10. The one below is pretty good as it does most anything.

This one will do it. Don't let the name fool you. It works on Windows up to Win 10.

Built-in disc burning software in Windows 10

If you single click an ISO file using File Explorer "Disk Image Tools/Manage" shows up in the ribbon (much like MS office 2007 and later). If you click on "Manage" two options should appear below. Selecting "Burn" will give you the tool that you are looking for. …

When asking questions we ask that you include the information listed here;

Help Us Help You

this way we will know all the particulars about your computer so we can give you the best answer and not guess your computer information.

Since you say this is a new computer then I have to guess this is a Windows 10 computer. If that is the case there IS a program included with Windows 10 that is a player and a very basic burner program too.
It is called Windows Media Player.

Press Windows logo key on the keyboard and type Windows Media Player.
Select the top most search result which is Windows Media Player and follow the on-screen instructions.

If we knew more about your computer and what it is that you want to burn then more information can be given.

Jack,

Sorry about that!
This is a HP17t laptop computer, running Windows 10 Home Edition. I have tried going to go to Media Player 10--even when online with HP--they advised getting burning software.

What version of Word is this? Do you mean that this is ONLY Word and not the full version of Microsoft Office which contains much more than just Word?
If it is older than version 2007 then it will not work on Windows 10 and I am not sure if standalone versions of Word will work on Windows 10 either.

Not sure what you mean by the sentence I have put in bold. If you have it on a CD already then why would you need to burn a new CD? If you have a program already on a CD then you would use that CD to Install a program onto a computer, not burn a new one. That said, Windows Media Player will Most Definitely burn the disk. No 3rd party program is needed

I am truly confused. You have a legal copy of Office. That is the very same one I have.

Why don't you want to install it on this new computer? Why do you think you need to burn it??

I have never heard of a computer that came with only a burner. Most today are DVD-RW drives which means they Play Or Burn. If they are not DVD but CD then they also are CD-RW drives which mean the same thing, play or burn. Both of these types drives do both jobs in other words.

Thank you in advance.
To burn a disk you are making a new disk.
What you want to do is install the program, not burn it.
Put the disk in the drive and install the program.

How long have you been computing? Why I ask is, you need to know the difference. (Computers-for-Dummies), is a good book to get, for beginners.

I am running Office 2003 (Word, Excel and Outlook) on Windows 10. I have no problems at all with Word or Excel, and one VERY minor but totally manageable issue with Outlook.

Thanks for that info Paul. Since I am running the same version that j@ck owns,
Microsoft Office Home and Student 2010, I was not sure what versions were guaranteed to work on Windows 10 so I had to search for answers.

I gave the information I found here:

I and the wife both run 2003 on Win 10 Home and Win 10 Pro. No problems with it at all. Still get updates for it also

Support has ended for Office 2003
Although you will still be able to start and run Office 2003, you may want to upgrade to a newer version of Office to get continuing support and updates.

Hey folks, we've all hi-jacked the original question and for the OP's sake it is time that we get back to that

The fact that Office 2003 works with Windows 10 really has nothing to do with the OP's question, especially since he has stated that he has Microsoft Office Home and Student 2010.
He believes that Windows 10 does not have the software included to burn disks and as we all know, it does.

After finally getting all his information, Wrong# and myself actually believe that what he really wants to do is install his Microsoft Office program onto his new computer and not actually burn a copy of the disk that he states he has to another disk. Wrong# has explained this to him, he just has not yet responded.

As I said before, he just needs to put the CD into (What he calls "just a DVD burner", ("DVD Multi action recorder", that now comes in most new computers) which is also a CD burner/player and a DVD burner/player, and do an install.

Now as Judy stated, he needs to come back (this is his first thread) and acknowledged that the CD program will/did install, as noted in these threads. (There is a big difference in installing a program on a computer, and burning/copying a program from one disk to another, and W10 has a built-in program to burn CD's/DVD's using the "DVD Multi action recorder").

FosterHackett has a point.

The last SECURITY update for Office 2003 on my PC occurred on Sept 02 2015, which I believe is the day I installed Office on the PC.

The updates in December 2016 were not directly for Office 2003. They were for Office 2007 and the Office Compatibility Pack. Those updates come to Office 2003 users who have the Compatibility Pack installed.

I cling to Office 2003 because Outlook has been my email client since Adam wore short pants and I don't want to change. I am aware that I am taking a chance.

True, but they share the same Compatibility Pack. And so does 2010.
I will continue to use it till somebody buys me a newer version and all the stuff that comes with the older version.

See my added comment above. When I get a round tuit (see attachment) I shall get a later standalone version of Outlook and switch everything else to LibreOffice.

Of course they share the same compatibility pack. If they didn't it wouldn't be a compatibility pack. But a security update for the compatibility pack is NOT a security update for Office 2003.
