The virtual machine image can be actioned by typing “Hyper-V Quick Create” into the start menu, or choosing Ubuntu from the list of operating systems in the Hyper-V Gallery.

The bootable Hyper-V image of Ubuntu Desktop 18.04 LTS includes XRDP pre-configured to ensure those running Ubuntu Desktop as a guest on Windows 10 Pro have a optimum performance.

Microsoft has worked with XRDP upstream to add support for their Enhanced Session Mode, to provide tighter integration between a Windows host and the Ubuntu virtual machine running in Hyper-V. The next step was to create a bootable Hyper-V image of Ubuntu Desktop 18.04 LTS which includes XRDP pre-configured to take advantage of Enhanced Session Mode.

Once booted you’ll be guided through setting up Ubuntu, including adding your user account, locale and time zone. When the first setup is complete Enhanced Session Mode will automatically be enabled and prompt you to select your display resolution. Once selected, you get an XRDP prompt to login, make sure that “Xorg” is selected from the drop-down, enter the username and password that you created during setup and you’ll be logged into a full Ubuntu Desktop session.
