    Kill a Linux process programmatically in WSL2


    If I issue a long-running WSL command from a C# program, how do I terminate that Linux process programmatically? How do I identify the PID of the process in Linux so that I can issue a 'kill' command?

    :)

    WSL2 for windows

    I have failed into installing WSL for Windows. I have read here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/win.../install-win10 how to do it, and at step 4:


    1. Download the latest package:
      [COLOR=var(--text)][COLOR=var(--info-dark)] Note[/COLOR]
      If you're using an ARM64 machine, please download the ARM64 package instead. If you're not sure what kind of machine you have, open Command Prompt or PowerShell and enter: systeminfo | find "System Type".
      [/COLOR]
    2. Run the update package downloaded in the previous step. (Double-click to run - you will be prompted for elevated permissions, select ‘yes’ to approve this installation.)

    I encountered:

    What I did wrong ? I have the following W10 version:

    Kill a Linux process programmatically in WSL2

    Showing the "Linux" folder on the file explorer navigation panel for WSL2

    One of the features that was released on the 2019 and May 2020 updates was having easy access to WSL system folders from the file explorer.

    After having a fresh install, the "Linux" folder on the navigation panel is no longer available for me (even though it was listed on the features of the new update). Of course it's possible to create a shortcut to the location of the WSL folder, but having
    an organized Linux folder for the different subsystems pinned is more ideal.

    Is there any possible way to enable that feature again? I have tried adding the registry key, but it seems like WSL2 have a different value.
