Is there a way to get multi tab bash windows for the linux subsystem in win 10? something like conemu or Multi-Tab putty or console (http://sourceforge.net/projects/console/)
You should be able to use something like MobaXterm and open multiple linux subsystem tabs. Take a look at this article and scroll down a bit to the demonstration video where he opens WSL tabs:
Also, as an aside, there is this UserVoice issue that appears to have been approved but is not implemented yet:
ahh cool did not know about wpdev on uservoice. On a side note, another feature i want is seperate wallpapers for each virtual desktop. Do you if there is something similar to wpdev.uservoice for a request like that? As far as i can tell there is just a code hack someone put together to get close to that feature.– w--Sep 1, 2016 at 16:47
Windows Terminal worked quickly and easily for me: https://www.microsoft.com/en-ca/p/windows-terminal-preview/9n0dx20hk701?activetab=pivot:overviewtab

@jimsmith, click the down arrow and select

Something similar you can use is a common linux utility called screen. If not installed by default you can use
sudo apt install screen once installed run
You can now run the command
screen to start a screen emulation, these are like invisible tabs. To create a new tab type: ctrl-"a" "c", to switch between tabs type ctrl-"a" "n"
This basically lets you have concurrent shells running. ctrl-"a" "d" detaches you back to your primary shell.

2FYI after starting screen use
su Johnor whatever your user is so you're not prancing around w root privs. Apr 29, 2019 at 15:59
You can just start a new instance of WSL instance of the same thing (eg: Start > Ubuntu ) and it will open up a new terminal (separate window) which operates on the same linux file system. It is simple although not another "Tab" but it should get your problem solved.
I use vi to edit files while I browse using other terminal window.

4@ZenVentzi because de OP is asking for multitab, not about opening a new window, which clearly is possible Apr 26, 2020 at 16:10
