How to Add or Remove Open Linux shell here context menu in Windows 10

The Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) is a new Windows 10 feature that enables you to run native Linux command-line tools directly on Windows, alongside your traditional Windows desktop and modern store apps.

This is primarily a tool for developers — especially web developers and those who work on or with open source projects. This allows those who want/need to use Bash, common Linux tools (sed, awk, etc.) and many Linux-first tools (Ruby, Python, etc.) to use their toolchain on Windows.

WSL provides an application called Bash.exe that, when started, opens a Windows console running the Bash shell. Using Bash, you can run command-line Linux tools and apps.

Bash is a popular text-based shell and command-language. It is the default shell included within Ubuntu and other Linux distros, and in macOS. Users type commands into a shell to execute scripts and/or run commands and tools to accomplish many tasks.

Starting in Windows 10 build 17672, a new Open Linux shell here context menu is available when you have Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) enabled and installed a Linux distro app.

By default, the Open Linux shell here context menu is only available when you press and hold the Shift key and right click or press and hold on a folder or drive.

This tutorial will show you how to add or remove the Open Linux shell here context menu for all users when Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) is enabled in Windows 10.
