    Can't activate Windows Sandbox


    Hello Everyone I bought a new laptop 6 months ago with original Win 10 Home Preinstalled within, Activated via Digital license, I'm trying to activate Windows Sandbox Feature and I've learnt that I need to upgrade my OS from home to pro edition, The issue is I can't upgrade my OS since my country doesn't allow any type of E-Payments, Is there any other way to get Sandbox Feature without upgrading my OS ?Laptop Model : Lenovo Legion 5 15IMH05HOS : Windows 10 home Edition 64xCPU : Intel Core i7-10750H

    :)

    windows sandbox Not working

    Hi,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    There is a possibility that the feature is corrupted or not set up properly. I would advise you to disable Windows Sandbox first and then enable it. Please follow the steps mentioned below:

    1. Open Control Panel.
    2. Then click on all Control Panel Items.
    3. Then click on Programs and features.
    4. Then on the left hand side, click on Turn Windows features on or off.
    5. Then uncheck the option: Windows Sandbox.
    6. Then restart your computer.
    7. After restart, please enable it and check if the sandbox is working.


    Also make sure that you meet all the requirements for Windows Sandbox.

    Regards,
