WSL2 Ubuntu GUI

WSL2 Ubuntu GUI

Install a graphical user interface (GUI) with Ubuntu 20.04 running within WSL 2 on a Windows 10 computer. Microsoft have announced that an RDP based GUI will be added to WSL2, but it’s not currently available. I’ll show you how to get a GUI installed and how to connect to the GUI using remote desktop so you can start using that today.
