mv ~/.Trash/foo ~/ mv: cannot stat '/home/man/.Trash/foo': No such file or directory
My question is that how can I open trash folder in Ubuntu/Win10?

WSL provides a Linux-compatible kernel interface developed by Microsoft (containing no Linux kernel code), which can then run a GNU user space on top of it. Such a user space might contain a Bash shell and command language, with native GNU/Linux command-line tools (sed, awk, etc.), programming language interpreters (Ruby, Python, etc.).

rm from Terminal and doesn't moves that to Trash folder.
