Yes, this run-down lists my Windows C:\ directory.
Everything run in wsl-console seems to always exceute the desired result.

This or for now, until perhaps this issue will be resolved with future distributions, I'll just have to install Texlive within Debian. Running pdflatex.exe from the console and having no preview just does not seem to be a very practical workflow.
Thank you so very much for your truly dedicated help, Ikumi! I still feel I have learned something from your also didactically excellent instructions. Computer science is obviously not my business, still you never lost patience. Domo arigato und Dankeschön!
In case any significant change in the status quo should come about in the future, I will make notice. So it can maybe be use who encounter the same issue.
Kind regards,
