If you’re running Windows 10/11, you can take advantage of the Windows Sandbox feature to create an isolated, temporary virtual machine where you can run untrusted apps without the fear of them affecting your main system. To get started, you’ll need to enable the Windows Sandbox feature in your system settings. Once that’s done, you can launch the Windows Sandbox from the Start menu.
Once you’re in the Windows Sandbox, you can go about your business as usual. Any changes you make will be isolated from your main system, so you can test out apps or websites without worry. When you’re done, you can simply close the Windows Sandbox and all your changes will be discarded. It’s a great way to try out new things without putting your system at risk.
