Using Kali Linux (And other systems) natively on Windows 10 without VM.

Not exactly something new but thought I'd share this cool trick there. Especially useful if you want to get access to Kali commandline tools like SET, metasploit and more without firing up a VM taking up a lot of system resources.

Note: This only applies for the linux commandline. So you probably wont be able to fire up GUI tools. But rather mostly for commandline tools such as Nikto etc. Bash for Windows doesn't seem to support GUI applications.

How to:

1. Enable WSL (Windows Subsystem for Linux).

Control Panel > Programs > Programs and Features > Turn Windows features on or off:

"Bottom"
Check: Windows Subsystem for Linux.

2. Reboot.

3. Sign into microsoft store, download Linux Subsystem of your choice: "Search for linux".

4. Fire up your commandline.

For kali, type "kali" into commandline to launch Linux subsystem:
