How to Enable or Disable Audio Input in Windows Sandbox in Windows 10

Windows Sandbox provides a lightweight desktop environment to safely run applications in isolation. Software installed inside the Windows Sandbox environment remains “sandboxed” and runs separately from the host machine.

A sandbox is temporary. When it’s closed, all the software and files and the state are deleted. You get a brand-new instance of the sandbox every time you open the application.

Starting with Windows 10 build 20161, a new group policy setting was added that enables or disables audio input to the Sandbox.

If you enable or do not configure this policy setting, Windows Sandbox will be able to receive audio input from the user. Applications using a microphone may require this setting.

If you disable this policy setting, Windows Sandbox will not be able to receive audio input from the user. Applications using a microphone may not function properly with this setting.

This tutorial will show you how to enable or disable audio input in Windows Sandbox for all users in Windows 10.
