This will be just a very quick tutorial on how to install and run Linux on a Windows 10 machine. In the end, you can install different flavors of Linux like Kali, Ubuntu, SUSE, and many other more inside your Windows 10 0S. There are only 4 main steps in order to do this. Yes, only 4, so without any further ado:

Let's Get Started 🚀

dism.exe /online /enable-feature /featurename:Microsoft-Windows-Subsystem-Linux /all /norestart 
  1. First, go to this link and copy the PowerShell code. Or, just copy the code above to quickly proceed to next step.

  2. Open your PowerShell as an Administrator and paste the code you just copied and press Enter. This will just enable your machine to run Linux.

  3. Then, go to your Windows' App Store and search for Linux on Windows. And just below it, select (click) your flavor of Linux and install it.

  4. After that, click Launch, then just create your username and password.

And, that's it, folks! 🔥 You have just installed your favorite flavor of Linux on your Windows 10 machine. Great job! 👏
