WSL cron

Windows Subsystem for Linux version 0.67.6 and newer can use systemd, which makes using Cron on WSL straightforward. Check the WSL version from Windows Terminal (from PowerShell or Command Prompt, not WSL):

wsl --version

WSL is recommended to be installed from the Microsoft Store.

Check that Cron is running in WSL:

systemctl status cron

Then as usual use crontab -e.
