One of the latest features of Windows 10 is Windows Sandbox. The Windows Sandbox allows you to run applications in a secure environment without having to worry about modifications to your files.
It is essentially a secure virtual machine. But as the title suggests, let's see how you can help with the fight against coronavirus with Windows 10 and Sandbox.
Microsoft itself explains the new feature, revealing that the Windows Sandbox allows all of us who want to offer computing power (CPU) to the project Folding @ Home.
Foldit was created by researchers at the University of Washington to use player tireless coercion to solve problems that aid scientific innovation.
Researchers and scientists would use this power to run protection simulations to help fight a variety of diseases, including the current COVID pandemic 19.
Microsoft has created a special command for PowerShell, which will configure what you need if you want to contribute to this project.
All you have to do is obviously enable Windows Sandbox on your device, and run it with the following PowerShell command:
Powershell.exe -ExecutionPolicy Bypass -File. \ Install_folding_sandbox_on_host.ps1
