Enable Sandbox in Windows 11

Since the Windows 10 v1903 update, you can use Windows Sandbox to try out applications you don’t trust without harming your device. Sandbox became one of the most used Windows tools in a very short time.

The reason for this is pretty simple: it is a lightweight virtual environment where you can run applications safely.

For example, if you want to open an executable file that you don’t trust but don’t want to infect your PC, you can do so without worrying about it.

This guide will show you how easy it is to set up your computer.
