awk, or other ELF-64 binaries.
The first step will be to go to the “Settings” of Windows 10. Then go to “Apps & Features“.
Once the “Apps and Features” page is open, just select “Programs and Features“.
This link will take us to the “Program and Features” page in this page, select “Turn Windows features on or off“.

There is a simple command to check the version of your WSL installation:
Open Powershell and type this command
wsl -l -v
Now that WSL is installed we will go to the Microsoft store to download Ubuntu. I did a search for “WSL” to find it but you can also type Ubuntu directly.
There are many distributions available on the store so you can search for another one if you need one 🙂
For example, select “Ubuntu 20.04 LTS“.
Then, click on “Install“
Wait for the download to end…
Once finished, you can start the session by clicking on “Start“.
At first startup, Ubuntu will ask you to create a user and a password, choose them well and don’t forget them 🙂 Have fun
