I have been developing Web applications on my Windows 10 PC, using VSCode with the Ubuntu/WSL terminal for the past month. Everything has been working fine so far.

Today I started up my PC and the Ubuntu App on Windows shows a blank terminal, as does Bash.exe and WSL.exe. I cannot type or do anything in the terminals.

Powershell, CMD and Git Bash are working fine.


Fixed by going to "Turn windows features on or off" in Settings, disabled Linux Subsystem, restarted PC, and then enabled and restarted PC.
