How to Enable or Disable Clipboard Sharing with 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 clipboard sharing with the sandbox.
