How to Set Default User for WSL (Ubuntu)

I have Ubuntu for WSL (Windows Subsystem for Linux). I’m not sure how it happened, but when I started the terminal, it started to default to the root user. I wanted to default the user to the one that’s not the root user.

ubuntu config --default-user hiriumi

Make sure to run it either from the Windows command line or PowerShell. Next time when you open Ubuntu terminal, it goes straight to the user you specified.
