Windows 11/10/8/7 comes with an inbuilt feature to burn ISO files on CD / DVD. But, there is no direct way to burn USB Flash Drive to make it bootable. One can use Microsoft’s Windows USB/DVD Download Tool or third-party ISO2Disc freeware to create a bootable USB flash drive.

The Windows To Go feature lets you mount Windows 11/10 without actually installing OS on any computer.
