Here are the steps for installing Emacs on Windows 10:
  • First enable the Linux subsystem:
    • Start Powershell as administrator
    • Type 'Enable-WindowsOptionalFeature -Online -FeatureName Microsoft-Windows-Subsystem-Linux' and confirm
    • Restart computer
    • Go to Windows Store and search for 'Linux'
    • Install Ubuntu, SUSE or anything you like from there and run it
  • Second, install Emacs:
    • Type 'sudo add-apt-repository ppa:kelleyk/emacs'
    • Type 'sudo apt update'
    • Type 'sudo apt install emacs25'

At this time you should have Emacs running in the Linux subsystem on Windows 10.

You can also install it on Android:
  • Install the Termux app
  • Type 'apt update'
  • Type 'apt install emacs'

But why would you need to install Emacs at all? Because now you can run 'emacs -batch -l dunnet'. Don't forget to 'save'! :D
