How to enable Video Input in Sandbox Windows 11 or 10

The ability to enable video input in Sandbox in Windows 11 and 10 is one of the new features brought into it. Sandbox is a temporary and safe virtual space or environment, which allows to run and test programs and codes, without having to worry about the risk of corrupting or ruining the whole system. However, in order to maintain all that secure functioning, Microsoft introduced the Sandbox environment with very limited functionalities. But it is still undergoing quite a bit of development. And, the video input enabling feature is one of the latest improvements in the area.

This very recent update made to the Windows Sandbox offer a certain level of flexibility to the otherwise-rigid Sandbox environment. You will be able to use or enable quite a few Group Policy settings in it. Don’t worry, this nowhere compromises the safety at any point. Just a few changes at a small scale are introduced to the Sandbox environment targeting the further strengthening of the process along with gradual improvement in the features and ability of this protective experimenting space. This somewhat rather adds to the convenience of the user. Microsoft seems to be working pretty well toward this goal.
