Project Description

WSL-path-exe is a “script” that helps you use native software (.exe) more easily inside WSL , putting everyone in the PATH without ever having to put .exe at the end. The exe’s will behave like a WSL command, so the autocomplete of some application will work too (e.g Python). Only bash and zsh are supported.


  • WSL/Ubuntu
  • Python (apt install python)
  • pip (apt install python-pip)

Install and Usage

The entire installation process is done within WSL, not in Powershell or CMD.

$ pip install wsl-path-exe

$ wsl-path-exe -l

You may want to always leave the executables available in PATH add folder WSL:

$ echo 'export PATH=$PATH:$HOME/.wsl' >> ~/.bashrc


$ echo 'export PATH=$PATH:$HOME/.wsl' >> ~/.zshrc
