Sandboxing is a method of running applications or even entire operating systems in an isolated environment. They run in containers that separate them from the operating system that the container itself runs. Windows 10 Pro users running feature update 1903 (or newer) can use the Sandbox inventory mode now included, however Windows 10 home users don't like it. That being said, there are plenty of sandboxing apps available for Windows 10 and one of the best just got free.
Sandboxie It is an application that has been around for a long time, so it not only works, it works well. Because it is now free, available for anyone to use. The only limitation is that it can only run Win32 or desktop applications, and not UWP or modern applications.
Sandbox mode activated Windows 10 houses
Download Sandboxie and install it. This application is quite small and the installation does not need more than a few minutes. This needs to install important drivers as part of the installation process.
Once installed, you can take a six-step introductory tutorial if you want. This is an application easy to use but it is still a good idea to see how things work. After completing the tutorial, create shortcuts for the applications you want to run in sandbox mode on your desktop.
Open Sandboxie and drag and drop the shortcut to the app window. You will see a box asking if you want to run the app in or out of the default Sandbox. The default Sandbox is selected by default, so click OK in this window. If you want, you can also run the application with high rights / administrator.
Sandboxie will show you the processes running for the application, and the application window will open with a yellow frame. You are free to use the application as usual.
Sandboxie is a very easy to use application. If you click on the icon in the system tray, you will find options that make it easier to select applications to run in sandbox mode. Light and not so Windows 10 Pro and its Sandbox mode, Sandboxie does not run the entire operating system to run a single application. Instead, just run the app you chose to make it lighter.
If you want to run the application in active sandbox mode Windows Home, this is one of the best options available. This application is not only free, but has been developed for years and is fully perfected.
