NEVER EVER Use a Windows Application to change a WSL file. YOU WILL CORRUPT YOUR DATA.

If you have Windows update 1903 installed (March 2019) you can use Windows File Explorer to access WSL files. However WSL must be running first.

If you want a GUI to edit files try gedit after installing sudo apt install ubuntu-desktop. See this for more information:
