Future version of Windows 10 lets you browse your Linux subsystem files

Yesterday Microsoft surprised us by releasing a Windows 10 20H1 build,  which according to Microsoft’s changelog contained only a few minor fixes.

One unheralded change was however noticed by Windows Subsystem for  Linux users, who noticed that it was now a lot easier to access your Linux files from inside Windows.

As can be seen from the image above, posted by Thomas Maurer, the Linux file system is now mounted in a similar way as a network drive or OneDrive. Multiple distros can be mounted, and users are easily able to move, copy or delete files and even use the command line.

Hopefully, Microsoft will have something equally exciting for Windows users in next year’s version of Windows 10.
