OpenInWSL lets you set WSL Linux apps as File Handlers in Windows. No more crazy code and custom batch files! Make any Linux app open any file directly from the File Explorer with one click! Even more Windows to WSL integration! Features: * Supports adding an "Open In WSL" item to the File Explorer context menu. * Supports being set as a file handler for all formats. * Lets you create and manage associations to forward different windows file types to any Linux program. * OpenInWSL Integrates with GWSL, wslg, and any other xserver. (GWSL is recommended). OpenInWSL does not provide graphics. F.A.Q. Does this provide Linux by itself? No, WSL must be enabled and installed. Distros must be installed through WSL. Please remember that I have spent many, many hours making this free for everyone. If something goes wrong, please contact me using the information below. Otherwise, I cannot help and the program will not get better. Please also consider making a small donation as my time is limited and college is expensive. Happy Summer, Paul
