I am pretty sure Windows 10 does not support any portable format and must be installed on a machine.
Windows 10 system files would not fit on a CD or even a DVD (uncompressed). Install disks are highly compressed and only a minimal amount if files for booting to the install are uncompressed.
What you want can be done with a Live Linux distribution, many will install on a DVD and some like Puppy Linux can install on a CD. You just download the ISO image and burn this to the disk as an image.
For using other apps on a running system you can get a Portable Apps set up which will install to a flash drive and allow you to run apps installed on it and not on the system.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

If you happen to be thinking of copying files from your system onto a bootable disk and using them automatically somehow then it will not get you far, for a host of reasons.

Or are you trying to copy a Windows disk?

Tell us "exactly" what you are trying to achieve.

✔ Best Answer
Use Windows it's MediaCreationTool from this site:

Tho the iso is about 4 GB, I recommend using a 8GB usb-stick. tho in theory it should work.

A CD-R "can" be written to and is more reliable than a CD-RW.

For Windows it would need to be a DVD-R.
