Can't create bootable USB

Here's a quick video of what's going on so I don't have to try to explain.

Just saw how laggy the video was, I say "Why won't the ISO pop up and then let me create the bootable USB?

Also when it tries to format my USB, this comes up.

Pretty sure you can't create a live USB for Windows using Start up disk creator.

These instructions might work to create a USB for Windows:

I'd agree that Start Up Disk Creator isn't going to work. I used the method at the link below to create a bootable windows 10 flash drive. Should work with any Linux with Grub2.
