How to Install Termux for PC - 2020 

If you are a termux user you should know that the termux is a Terminal Emulator for Linux. Basically, it's a Lighter version on the Linux command-line interface. Since it is a Lighter version they made is a little bit simpler than the Linux terminal. And If you Run Termux Commands on Linux shell, some of them won't work. 

There are two ways you can install the Termux in your PC, In the first method we will use Bluestack Android Emulator and we will install the termux App on it. Every time we want to use the termux we will open BlueStack and use it like we do on android.

In the second method, we will install we will use Linux Subsystem for windows to install the Linux shell in Windows. Since we are using the Linux subsystem we will be installing the full version Linux shell and not the light version termux. This will run much faster than the 1st method and it will not lag at all and Bluestack will lag a lot if you have 4gb ram PC.

But the only difficulty in using the  2nd method is that only a few commands will differ from the termux commands. Like you must have to use apt and not the pkg and some time you will need to type sudo before commands because the terminal will be rooted😍.

Step 6:

Now everything is Set and you just have to use this Terminal like you use termux but Keep in mind that this is Actual Linux so you need to use Linux commands. The Linux commands are the same as termux you just have to use apt here and not pkg. You will also have to type sudo before commands if they are not working normally. Below you can see that I have installed Neofetch in Kali Linux shell.

Conclusion : 

These are the most common methods to use termux in PC. To be honest the Bluestack is accurate because you are actually using Termux BUT it takes all your resources and It lags a lot. To test all the scripts that I make, I use the windows subsystem for Linux, It is a much faster, Cleaner, and it is same as the termux. If you can use Linux Shell than that means you are a good Linux user. If you are facing any error while installing and using these tools just drop a comment I will surely give you a reply. Thanks For reading Guys, and as always Stay Ethical👾.
