    Build 1903 Sandbox question


    I just open (for the 1st time) Sandbox. Under windows security it will not let me sign in under my
    microsoft account so I pretty much have the basic screen and none of the windows apps I wanted to troubleshoot. In fact very few apps except netflix, word and associated , news, paint3d etc.
    Since windows store isn't available . I can't install them in sandbox. any suggestions as to how to get the apps over?

    The Sandbox runs under a hardwired local account, restricted, isolated, as shown in this pic. (My Insider Sandbox). Cannot, at present, be changed. Probably should not be allowed to use an MS account for security reasons, would defeat the "sandbox" effect, a hole for bad guys to visit. Thomas, I'm afraid you can't get there from here. Sandbox is a temporary chunk of memory, gone completely when closed.

    An alternative would be a VM (VMWare, Virtual Box, Hyper-V, etc.) running under the main OS. You can do whatever you want in a VM, local or MS account, anything. Just no Sandbox MS account.

    The VM is a viable alternative. Sorry Sandbox won't work for what you want to do. It's intended to sanity check 3rd party apps mostly to make sure they wouldn't eat your machine.
