  1. WSL explorer.exe not found


    I've been using wsl for a few months now with no problems, but today I just cannot use explorer.exe to open up the windows file system. Literally 12 hours ago it had no issues, now it doesn't recognize the command

    Edit: Somehow, wsl cannot access windows files anymore, it sees /mnt/c as empty. Any reason this might have happened?

  2. How to access files on network drive from windows subsystem for Linux (WSL)

    Steps to Access Files on Network Drive from Windows Subsystem for Linux

    Very simple steps to control files on Network Drive from WSL are as follows:

    1. At first, tap down both the Windows and the letter E key at a time. This will open the File Explorer on the screen.
    2. After that, from the left-hand side panel click on Linux and then
      hit on the Distros shortcut, that is present at the right-hand side of the window.
    3. Next, open the running WSL distro (ex: Ubuntu) folder, to see the files that you want.
    4. Further, double-click on the folder named as Home under the
      list, to open.
    5. Now, open the folder.

    That's it.

  3. WSL in windows Store

    Actually, this is a consumer-oriented forum for general Windows 10 questions.

    As WSL concerns mostly developers and Enterprise, I suggest asking there.
