    Question Ubuntu Live Media

    Hello, I'd like to know if the "live Media" of Ubuntu Desktop 20.04 LTS have built in, and already installed on, Powershell.
    If it does not, how can we include it by default ?

    Thank you

    It doesn't. There's no reason for it to be included.

    Installation instructions are here. If you're really desperate to always have it in a live session, you can look at "persistence" or modifying the image.

    The easiest method is just write the ISO as a persistent image...

    I use `mkusb` to write ISOs normally; the persistent wiki page being https://help.ubuntu.com/community/mkusb/persistent , but it's not the only tool that will create them.

    Writing the existing ISO that way is easier than re-creating an ISO yourself.

    Or...install to USB. You will need 2 USB sticks (One to install from and one to install to). You can then use the entire stick as a disk rather than the 4Gb limit in the persistence

    The Ubuntu live session will allow us to change system settings and install applications but once we shutdown the live session all the changes are lost. A Ubuntu live session with persistence will make any changes persist. They are not lost when we shutdown the session. And so will an install of Ubuntu onto a USB memory stick This is why the above posts are making these recommendation.

    It is a machine. It is more stupid than we are. It will not stop us from doing stupid things.

    Re: Ubuntu Live Media

    Thanks All ! I'll try that !
    So, to sum it up : I "mount" (please note that I'm working on an Microsoft system) the current ISO (20.04) and install it onto a USB stick. Then, from that I make changes ? Or did I lost something in between ?

    Today there are several ways to use all available drive space for persistence, for example with mkusb in Ubuntu and Rufus in Windows.

    See this link.
