Install Linux on Windows and Run Linux on Windows with the Help of Our Linux Installation Guide!


It is simple to obtain a free Linux distribution and install Linux on Windows if you already have Windows installed on your computer system. You may now study Linux by installing it in Windows and running it there.

A free virtual machine “player” (software) and a free Linux virtual machine are all you need to get Linux up and running on Windows.

A Linux virtual machine is an image file containing an entire Linux installation, including the Linux OS and all the Linux applications.

Following the methods below, you can run Linux inside Windows by downloading and installing the free Linux virtual machine player and a free Linux virtual machine.

How to Install Linux on Windows in 7 Easy Steps and Start Using Linux on Windows Today!

After saving the free Linux virtual machine player to your Windows desktop, a shortcut to the player installation wizard will appear on the desktop.

Double-click the installation icon to install the Linux virtual machine player, and then follow the on-screen instructions. The player software requires no particular expertise to install; it sets up like any other Windows app. After setup, a shortcut to the virtual machine player appears in the system tray. In contrast to the icon used during setup, this one launches the player.

Third, make use of a free Linux VM download. It has been combined into a single colossal zip file. This file is a Linux virtual machine and contains various other files. A fresh Linux OS with Linux software applications is “pre-installed” in these files. A plethora of free Linux virtual machines are available for use with a wide variety of Linux distributions.

A Linux desktop should be included in any virtual machine you download, so keep that in mind. Linux servers are sometimes built on virtual machines that lack desktop environments. If you’re starting with Linux, a desktop environment will make navigating the operating system’s menus and applications much less daunting. The desktop environment also supports multiple terminal emulation windows, which provide access to the Linux command line and allow you to execute Linux commands.

Linux Hints: The root user’s password can be found on the Linux distribution download page. You’ll need to know the root user password to administer Linux from the command line.

Fourth, make a new directory to store the Linux virtual machine files on your Windows hard drive. You must first create this folder before you can extract the Linux virtual machine files from the single compressed file.

Unpack the Linux virtual machine files from the single download file into the Windows folder you just made.

Sixth, boot up a Linux virtual machine. To launch the virtual computer, double-click the shortcut on your desktop. You’ll be asked to enter the name of a virtual machine you’d like to “open” at this point.

Seven, “open” the Linux VM by navigating to the folder you just made. This makes using Linux on Windows a breeze.

Even after compression, a Linux virtual machine file is still fairly sizable. Access to a fast Internet connection is highly recommended. Consider using a Linux live CD if you can’t afford high-speed internet. You may order one of these online and have it shipped cheaply.

Installing Linux on Windows and running it there is a great way to learn Linux and gain significant experience with it.
