I'm doing a project which is to use ros2 on windows 10 to control a ur5 robot. Is there anyone know how to do this? or any resource on that ?

Is the project's goal specifically to use Windows 10 to control the robot, or ROS to control it? What dictates the Windows 10 choice?

You can have a look at This uses ROS 2 and has all the things setup for Windows as well (i.e. visibility macros etc). I used it for controlling an ABB robot with it. I believe with a correct hardware interface towards the UR5, you should be able to reuse some of the code.
