Are there any innovations since 2018 that would make this easier?
No. The method is a dedicated partition formatted as NTFS mounted in both systems where fastboot is disabled on the Windows side. Linux will refuse to mount dirty filesystems (fastboot=hibernation=shutting down with a filesystem in a hibernation file=dirty).
Nothing changed in regards to file ...
WSL is getting its IP address (and it's DNS server, netmask and other stuff) from Windows' DHCP Server. Either fix it on Windows, or fix the DNS server on 172.22.192.1.
This is a Windows problem, not a Ubuntu problem.
And No, I don't how Windows does DHCP.
A virtualhost of 192.168.56.212/test.com is not valid. Vhosts should be a FQDN, e.g. example.org.

Did you grant appropriate permissions to the xrdp user that installation creates?
sudo usermod -a -G ssl-cert xrdp
Installation creates a user. If that user lacks certificate permissions xrdp will not function. This is spelt out in just about every xrdp installation guide ever written.
This may or may not be your issue but it can cause the described ...
There's a mistake on the mountpoint path. Instead of /Desktop/extHD it should be /home/yourusername/Desktop/extHD, or simply ./extHD if you're already inside the Desktop folder. To find out where you are you can run the pwd command.
Provided you already have an iso, you can use Etcher or mintstick to help you make bootable pendrives from iso files. If your ...
There is no need to reconfigure Ubuntu, but, if you have more than one distribution installed and Ubuntu is not your default, you must also specify the distribution in addition to the root user:
wsl -d Ubuntu -u root
Then go about your business to reset your regular user account. Stealing the one-liner from @NotTheDr01ds:
wsl -d Ubuntu -u root passwd ...
I am going to make some assumptions:
That Windows is installed and configured to boot via UEFI.
Ubuntu is installed and configured to boot via UEFI.
You're currently seeing the grub menu at boot.
After Windows has been upgrade to 2021 April? Grub Menu disappeared
I use UBUNTU USB BOOTED AND Install Boot-repair and chosen auto-repair
