Announcing WSL 2

What exactly is WSL 2?

Our top requests from the WSL community have been to increase the file system performance, and make more apps work inside of WSL (i.e: introduce better system call compatibility). We have heard your feedback, and are glad to announce that WSL 2 helps solve these issues.
WSL 2 is a new version of the architecture that powers the Windows Subsystem for Linux to run ELF64 Linux binaries on Windows. This new architecture changes how these Linux binaries interact with Windows and your computer’s hardware, but still provides the same user experience as in WSL 1 (the current widely available version). Individual Linux distros can be run either as a WSL 1 distro, or as a WSL 2 distro, can be upgraded or downgraded at any time, and you can run WSL 1 and WSL 2 distros side by side. WSL 2 uses an entirely new architecture that uses a real Linux kernel.

Release details

Initial builds of WSL 2 will be available through the Windows insider program by the end of June 2019.

Take Ownership in Windows 8

In previous versions of Windows it was easy to take ownership of a file, folder or drive. Taking the ownership is especially useful when you accidentally remove the permissions belonging to you or the Administrators group.

However, this functionality is very difficult to find on Windows 8. To achieve this you can follow the steps below, which will allow you to be able to instantly take ownership of a file, folder (and all contents), or drive (and all contents) by changing the owner to the current user and grant the Administrators group full access permission.

1. Create an empty .reg file  and save it on the disk
2. Add the following content to file and save it

--- file content ---
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
@="\"%1\" %*"
"IsolatedCommand"="\"%1\" %*"
--- file content ---

3. Double click on the .reg file to merge it.
4. Click on Run, Yes (UAC), Yes, and OK to approve the merge.

Hope this helps you.
