    Starting with Windows Sandbox.

    Windows Sandbox is a new lightweight desktop environment tailored for safely running applications in isolation.

    How many times have you downloaded an executable file, but were afraid to run it? Have you ever been in a situation which required a clean installation of Windows, but didnt want to set up a virtual machine?

    At Microsoft, they regularly encounter these situations, so they developed Windows Sandbox: an isolated desktop environment where you can run untrusted software without the fear of lasting impact to your device. Any software installed in Windows Sandbox stays only in the sandbox and cannot affect your host. Once Windows Sandbox is closed, all the software with all of its files and state are permanently deleted.

    When Windows Sandbox is enabled a read-only 8 GB PortableBaseLayer system partition without a drive letter is automatically created and should not be deleted. The PortableBaseLayer partition is automatically removed when Windows Sandbox is disabled.

    Windows Sandbox has the following properties:
    • Part of Windows – everything required for this feature ships with Windows 10 Pro and Enterprise. No need to download a VHD!
    • Pristine – every time Windows Sandbox runs, it’s as clean as a brand-new installation of Windows
    • Disposable – nothing persists on the device; everything is discarded after you close the application
    • Secure – uses hardware-based virtualization for kernel isolation, which relies on the Microsoft Hypervisor to run a separate kernel which isolates Windows Sandbox from the host
    • Efficient – uses integrated kernel scheduler, smart memory management, and virtual GPU
    Prerequisites for using the feature
    • Windows 10 build 18305 or higher
    • AMD64 architecture (64-bit)
    • Virtualization capabilities enabled in BIOS
    • At least 4GB of RAM (8GB recommended)
    • At least 1 GB of free disk space (SSD recommended)
    • At least 2 CPU cores (4 cores with hyperthreading recommended)
    This tutorial will show you how to install or uninstall the Windows Sandbox feature on a PC with Windows 10 Home edition installed.

    You must be signed in as an administrator to enable Windows Sandbox.[/I]

    If you have Controlled Folder Access turn on, you will need to temporarily turn it off until after you have finished enabling Windows Sandbox.

    Having task manager showing virtualisation enabled I assumed that it was enabled in the BIOS. Can't remember the error code I was having just assumed there was a bug that it wouldn't open. When I eventually checked the BIOS I found it wasn't enabled there.*Redface Worked afterwards.
