If the OpenFOAM is installed in the virtual Linux system of Windows 10, we can use explorer.exe . to open the OpenFOAM installation folder, which makes it easier to modify the solvers.

On Linux, is there a similar command to explorer.exe . that can open the OpenFOAM installation folder?

Is your intended virtual Linux system WSL2? If so, it's easy. Go to OpenFOAM installation directory in the WSL2 terminal and execute the following command.

$ explorer.exe .
