Windows Insiders Preview Build 19613
If you like to test the new features of Windows 10 and give feedback to the Microsoft product team, then the Windows Insiders Program is the place to Join. Here you can become a Windows Insider
I’m a Windows Insider since 2014 and a Windows Insider MVP since July 2019 and I love the collaboration with the Community and with the Microsoft Product Team to make a better product like Windows 10 together.
On my windows Insiders Build version 19613, I like to have my tools and Apps installed like :
- Microsoft Office
- Microsoft Teams
- Microsoft Visual Studio Code with all the Awesome Extensions 😉
- Windows Admin Center
- All the Microsoft Edge Browser versions
- WSL 2 and Windows Terminal ( via Microsoft Store)
I’m in the Microsoft Windows Insiders FAST Ring, and I want to test everything like Windows 10 operating system but my Tools must also be working on every new Windows Insiders Build.
Installing WSL 2 and Windows Terminal on Windows Insider Build version
Open Powerhell in Administrator modus
dism.exe /online /enable-feature /featurename:Microsoft-Windows–Subsystem-Linux /all /norestart
dism.exe /online /enable-feature /featurename:VirtualMachinePlatform /all /norestart
When both dism commands are successfully completed, you have to restart your machine.
wsl –set-default-version 2
Now you have set WSL 2 version in the basic, but you have to install a Linux distro where you can find
here in the Microsoft Store
I installed Kali Linux distro from the Microsoft Store.
Enter a New User name and password.

One of the Cool features in Windows Insiders Build version 19613 is that you can use your File explorer for Kali Linux 😉
