The "WSL" section is not showing

See original GitHub issue

Explain the bug The WSL section on the sidebar, is not showing, meaning we can’t access WSL folders.

This also includes placing the absolute address for WSL folders in the adress bar, for example: \\wsl.localhost\openSUSE-Tumbleweed shows: image

To reproduce

  1. Install a WSL Distro
  2. Try to browse it in files

Expected behaviour It should show the WSL folders and allow accessing them and manipulating them

Logfile debug.txt debug.log
