Moreover, let’s get into it.

It is a happy time for those who had already installed WSL in their Windows OS. Because in this new Windows 10 insider build 19603 update one of the main features is a new Linux icon situated in the left-hand navigation pane in the file explorer and when you click on it you will able to see all Linux distros.

In the above section we have discussed two terms, the first one is WSL and the second one is Linux distribution or Linux distros. So, let’s clear the concept what exactly Linux distribution is?

What is Linux Distribution?

Linux Distribution is a combination of Linux kernel, GNU Tool chain, Graphical Environment, Package Manager and Repositories, and Default selection of Software.

Now, the other term what is WSL and how it’s connected to Linux.

What is Windows Subsystem for Linux?

After knowing what Linux distribution is, let’s move toward what is WSL or Windows Subsystem for Linux. So, basically WSL is an official thing or official feature of Windows provided by Microsoft itself that provides a compatibility environment that allows Linux tools and programs to run inside of Windows machine.

Once you install it you get access to a terminal window where you can run bash command and from there you can run all the normal things. You would also run compilers and you can do editing, copy things around the secure shell.

With the help of WSL you can able to access a visualized a containerized compatible kind of Linux environment in Windows machine.

Now, let’s back to the Windows 10 Insider build 19603

So, before this update if a user wants to access their WSL data then, they have to go to the default location and that is

C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\Packages\CanonicalGroupLimited.Ubuntuon Windows_79rhkp1fndgsc\LocalState

But after this 19603 update, you will see Linux penguin Tux on the left-hand side off the screen. Which make it easier than ever to access root file from your different Linux Distribution.

Another new feature in this build is the user cleanup recommendation in storage settings. That will help you to free up space on your PC or removing unused app and files.

Because Windows are not able to predict itself that whether you want to delete personal files, uninstall software or want to remove local copies of files synced to the cloud for better storage management.

 So, with the help of this tool all the content is gathered on one page and you can remove it in a few clicks.
