Microsoft requires you to pay for their software.

They do not enforce this in the software itself, however. I
would consider it ethical to use their software once to
determine compatibility, after which you should pay for a
license or delete it.

https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10ISO/

is where one downloads ISOs. There is no account creation or
registration required. The installation process will ask you to
agree to their EULA; if you do not, the install halts. It will
also ask for a license key, but you do not have to fill that in
immediately.
