Windows subsystem for Linux is not available in windows 10, error when starting DOCKER

At the time of docker start if we get this error "Windows subsystem for Linux is not available" then we can try this command on Powershell 

reference: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/wsl/install

Note: OS version should be equal to or greater than 2004

For the lower version we can enable and disable it from the Control panel > Turn Windows features on or off

Note: Restart may be required.

If you have enabled it, you may need to enable this feature from the PowerShell command

Enable-WindowsOptionalFeature -Online -FeatureName VirtualMachinePlatform

If getting an alert for Linex kernel update, you can update it from here
