    FYI. After some experimentation this morning as expected I have been unable to install the sandbox feature in a VirtualBox VM. It complains that virtualisation is not enabled.

    Why did MS limit this to Pro and Enterprise? Home users could get a lot of use out of it too.

    Because Home is intended for those who surf Facebook, watch YouTube, read and write some mail and play CandyCrushSodaSaga and not much beyond that.

    Maybe because Home doesn't have Microsoft Hypervisor, virtual machine platform, and Hyper-V?

    Indeed.

    For example, if you could link Guest Account logon to Sandbox it would be perfect - anyone can do what they want and it is all destroyed on exit.

    While it's true that Windows 10 Home isn't intended for businesses, it's not true that windows 10 Home is only intended for the things you list.

    In fact, Windows 10 Home will run just about anything Windows 10 Pro will run.

    My daughter has a Lenovo with Windows 10 Home on it and she runs their American Pool Association league franchise with it.
