Windows Sandbox Configuration File

A configuration file can be used to control the parameters for the Windows 10 Sandbox. The illustrated XML file can be used to test downloaded files inside the sandbox. The sandbox invoked by this configuration file has disabled networking and the virtual GPU, and it allows read-only access to the shared downloads folder. The logon command opens the downloads folder inside the sandbox. This arrangement could more easily enable testing of unknown or untrusted applications, because now the user could click on the executable to test it.
