Command line terminal where the magic happens. It’s perfect for file management, development, remote administration and a thousand other tasks.
The Ubuntu terminal for Windows has many of the same features you’ll find using the terminal on Ubuntu:
- Unrivalled breadth of packages, updates and security features
- Bash, Z-Shell, Korn and other shell environments without virtual machines or dual-booting
- Run native tools such as SSH, git, apt and dpkg directly from your Windows computer
You will need a x86 PC running Windows 10. Windows 10 needs to be updated to include the Windows 10 Fall Creators update, released October 2017. This update includes the Windows Subsystem for Linux which is needed to run the Ubuntu terminal.
Enable WSL through PowerShell or Control Panel
PowerShell: To enable WSL 1 on Windows 10 Fall Creators update and newer run the following in PowerShell as Administrator:
dism.exe /online /enable-feature /featurename:Microsoft-Windows-Subsystem-Linux /all /norestart
To enable WSL 2 on Windows 10 May 2020 update and newer run the following in PowerShell as Administrator:
dism.exe /online /enable-feature /featurename:VirtualMachinePlatform /all /norestart
and then restart Windows 10.
Control Panel:Control Panel\Programs\Programs and Features.
- Turn Windows features on or off.
- Tick Windows Subsystem for Lunix.
- This will take a few moments to load.
- You will have to restart you computer once installed.
Ubuntu can be installed from the Microsoft Store:
- Use the Start menu to launch the Microsoft Store application or click here.
- Search for Ubuntu and select the first result, ‘Ubuntu’, published by Canonical Group Limited.
- Click on the Install button.
Ubuntu will be downloaded and installed automatically. Progress will be reported within the Microsoft Store application.
When launched for the first time, Ubuntu will inform you that it’s ‘Installing’ and you’ll need to wait a few moments.
When complete, you’ll be asked for a username and password specific to your Ubuntu installation. These don’t need to be the same as your Windows 10 credentials. With this step complete, you’ll find yourself at the Ubuntu bash command line.
Congratulations! You have successfully installed and activated the Ubuntu terminal on Windows 10. You now have all the power of the command line at your fingertips.
