Windows 10 latest preview: Sandbox gets new features, but VMware's still broken
Microsoft has served up some important improvements to Windows Sandbox, the space in the next version of Windows 10 for safely running untrusted executable files. Windows Sandbox is set to debut in Windows 19H1, aka version 1903, which Microsoft is finalizing over the next few weeks for release this spring. Microsoft introduced Windows Sandbox in the 19H1 preview build 18305 this past December, offering users an ephemeral, containerized desktop environment to run untrusted apps. Windows Sandbox is available on Windows 10 Pro and Enterprise, and can be enabled from the Windows Features dialog in Control Panel. Users can copy an executable from the host, and then paste and run it in Windows Sandbox without exposing the host to anything nasty. The latest Fast Ring preview from the 19H1 branch is build 18353 and it delivers a number of new features to Windows Sandbox.The build enables a device's microphone in Windows Sandbox to improve accessibility capabilities and includes new options to configure the audio input device from a Windows Sandbox configuration file.
