After restarting your system just search for bash on ubuntu for windows 10. A command prompt opens.

To check which Ubuntu release has been installed. Type

cat /etc/lsb-release

josept@LENOVO-PC:~$ cat /etc/lsb-release
DISTRIB_ID=Ubuntu
DISTRIB_RELEASE=14.04
DISTRIB_CODENAME=trusty
DISTRIB_DESCRIPTION="Ubuntu 14.04.4 LTS"

My system is running Ubuntu 14.04.4 LTS.

Happy Learning !!
