Specify which terminal to use for File Watcher

I have my webstorm projets located in WSL (Windows Subsystem for Linux) directory. For my terminal I use wsl. 

At the moment, File Watcher makes use of cmd.exe; this is problematic since cmd.exe isn't able to cd into the wsl directory in which the project resides. Thus my question becomes: How do I specify that File Watcher should use WSL as opposed to cmd.exe?

File watchers aren't using any shells, and there is no way to specify what terminal to use

We have a feature request for adding WSL support, https://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/WEB-38925, please follow it for updates
