How to Safely Run Software With Windows 10 Sandbox
July 13, 2019 / PCmag
Do you want to try out and test new software programs, but don't want a potentially risky program harming your current Windows environment? You need a way to safely isolate such programs so they can't interfere with the rest of Windows. For that, you can turn to Windows Sandbox, which Microsoft introduced with the Windows 10 May 2019 Update. The Sandbox provides an isolated, temporary virtual environment through which you can download, install, and run unknown and untested applications. Beyond using the Sandbox to run unknown applications, you can use it to check out websites that seem suspicious, unfamiliar browser extensions and add-ons, and other items you might not want to run in your regular Windows environment.
