New alternative for Win10 Pro only: MS Windows Sandbox

#1 Post by w0qj » Wed Aug 14, 2019 1:34 am

There is a New alternative for Win10 Pro only: MS Windows Sandbox.

Sandbox can be used as a "Win10 Pro Virtual Machine lite version", and is less demanding on your CPU since it runs as an App and not as VM.

Practical uses: Use Sandbox to try/install new program that are suspected to contain malware, use browser in Sandbox to visit sites which may install malware, etc.

Obviously Sandbox has its limits; it does not (and cannot) completely replace Virtual Machines.

Caveat: This requires Win10 Pro, and Windows 10 May 2019 Update.

Current Thinkpads: X1E1 | X1C4 | X1C3 | X250 | X230 | T410
Retired Thinkpads: T42 | 560 (circa 1996)
