Remote SSH Interpreter through WSL on Windows Host Follow
I am trying to set a remote interpreter on Windows Host with WSL, but WSL is not listed in the interpreter options.
I tried to set it with a ssh connection to the Windows host but without any luck. Even when I am able to connect, I cannot browse files and directories. Is there a way to do it on a Windows target computer (I am working on a Linux machine)?
Also, anyone knows when we will be able to do remote development through SSH on Windows computers? It says the feature will be available soon but no clue when. VS Code does it easily, so I guess it is possible for PyCharm to implement it too.
Thanks for your answers.

Try removing the plugins directory https://www.jetbrains.com/help/pycharm/directories-used-by-the-ide-to-store-settings-caches-plugins-and-logs.html#plugins-directory and restarting PyCharm.
Does the WSL option appear after that?
thanks for your answer. I tried to rename the plugins folder.
When I start Pycharm, I do not have any plugin installed but still no WSL option on the interpreters list.
Could you share your idea.log file from Help | Show Log in...?
You can upload it to our FTP server https://uploads.services.jetbrains.com/
Let me know the upload ID.
I installed Pycharm with the Jetbrains Toolbox and do not find any file idea.log.
Are logs registered in another file?
Sorry, I found the log file. But before uploading it, I need to anonymize some data in it.

You are running PyCharm on Linux. It's expected that there is no WSL option as it is a Windows-only feature.
So there is no way to connect remotely to a Windows host (for selecting an interpreter or for remote code)?
Not at the moment. Here is a feature request about that https://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/PY-20952/Support-Python-SSH-Remote-Interpreter-on-Windows-machine-with-Cygwin-sshd-or-OpenSSH
