    Default W10 Inbuilt Sandbox.

    So since May 2019 Update 1903, windows has given us a built in Sandbox for Pro Users.

    Requirements Minimum; PC running Windows 10 Pro, Enterprise, or Education build 1903 or later
    Virtualization support enabled in BIOS

    For optimum performance;
    64-bit architecture
    Minimum 4GB of RAM
    Minimum 1GB of free storage space
    Minimum 2 CPU cores

    It also needs to be turned on/installed thru Windows features.

    Unfortunately it only has Edge browser & although you can install the browser of your choice in the sandbox, you will have to do so every time you use it, as it's a clean virtual installation every time you open it.

    Anyway I'm giving it a try.

    Anyone else used it?

    Thoughts?

    Comments from the anti windows tin hat brigade not welcome. Thank you for holding that thought.

    EDIT:
    Found a good article with videos for visual info.

    M$ have only just worked this out? WINE and Play on Linux have been around for centuries. And now M$ has finally caught on? How much will it cost?
    I'm out of my mind, but feel free to leave a message...

    ..... Microsoft has finally figured out how to use Windows safely, for the tin hat brigade.

    ...and guess what, Home users can have a go too:
    This era of thoughtless consumption must end so we can encourage a world of creative geniuses rather than consumer idiots,
    while ensuring that we get don't get wiped out by our creations .
