As a lightweight desktop environment, it is tailored to run applications securely. In other words, you can run untrusted software in the sandbox without worrying about it having a lasting impact on your device.

For the average user, you can make it run in the same window as a normal program. Even if it turns out that these programs are malware, the main system permanently deletes all related software and temporary files after closing the Windows Sandbox.


Given the many interesting applications on the web, there are inevitably some black sheep that pretend to be decent. So the operations in the Windows Sandbox allow you to test them well.

It is reported that the sandbox mode introduced in Windows 10 1903 can simulate a complete operating system and at the same time be safely isolated from the rest of the main system. Every time you restart the sandbox, you get a brand new test site.


To experience this feature, you must operate on a PC with Windows 10 Professional or Enterprise license.Other minimum system requirements include:

● 4GB memory (8GB recommended)

● At least 1GB of available storage (recommended)SSD)

● At least 2 CPU cores (recommended for more than 4 cores / Hyper-Threading)

● Enable virtualization support in the BIOS


How to enable Windows Sandbox in Windows 10:

● Open the "Control Panel"

● Find "Turn Windows features on or off"

● Check "Windows Sandbox" and enable it

Once enabled, you can find the "Windows Sandbox" app in the "Start" menu, and of course you can pin icons to the taskbar for quick access.
