Accessing home folders from Windows Subsystem for Linux in Explorer

Are you running Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSfL)? Ever wondered where the home folders are stored so that you can access them from Explorer? Seek no further for here is the answer.

Every distribution has it’s own location. They can be found under:

%LOCALAPPDATA%\Packages

For Ubuntu 18.04 you can find the home folders in the following location:

%LOCALAPPDATA%\Packages\CanonicalGroupLimited.Ubuntu18.04onWindows_79rhkp1fndgc\LocalState\rootfs\home

Enjoy!
