To install Windows Sandbox, you must be on Windows 10 Pro or Enterprise and

HomeGroup, the Good, the Bad, the Ugly

Note: HomeGroup is a very open sharing environment. Please be sure your home network is very secure before setting up your HomeGroup. For the most part I have had good luck with HomeGroup in Windows 7 and Windows 8. It is an easy way to share content and devices between computers in your home.
