With the Linux subsystem Windows behaves like Linux and one can add instructions along this lines:

For Windows 10 please install the Ubuntu Linux subsystem, then follow the
instructions for a Ubuntu system. <a
href="https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/wsl/install-win10">These</a>
are Microsoft's official instructions on how to do so, 
<a href="https://www.howtogeek.com/249966/how-to-install-and-use-the-linux-bash-shell-on-windows-10/">these</a>
are less official but slightly easier to read instructions to do the same. You
may also want to install native ssh client like
<a href="https://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/">Putty</a> and an
X11 server like <a href="https://sourceforge.net/projects/vcxsrv/">VcXsrv</a>,
<a href="https://sourceforge.net/projects/xming/">XMing</a> or an all-in-one
solution for X11 server and ssh client like
<a href="https://mobaxterm.mobatek.net/">MobaXterm</a>.
