By now we are aware that Windows 8 has the ability to mount .ISO files. But what happens when one day you go to click on that .ISO file and the mount option is missing.

This is what happened to me.  To fix this little problem the following steps were followed:

  1. Right click the .ISO file, and select properties in the menu
  2. Under the General Tab, select Change to change the file association
  3. You will be prompted to choose what program should open the file type. Choose Windows Explorer

One you have selected Windows Explorer, the mount option is available again.
