Excel

Is there something special I need to do in order to open an excel file in a sandbox?

If I open an excel file, it will open the excel program, but will not open the file. Does that make sense?

Windows 7

SB version 5.24

Browser history

I have noticed the Sandboxie wipes the browser history from Explore, but not from Chrome, is that correct?

Re: Make SB my Default Browser [SOLVED]

So the workarounds are what you suggested here?

viewtopic.php?f=11&t=23900#p125796



In the meantime, there are 2 workarounds that you can test:
1 - Run Word Sandboxed
2 - Use a different default web-browser (I tested Google Chrome and it seems to work fine).

Re: Make SB my Default Browser [SOLVED]

I am not sure this the same problem as the link you provided. I am running Win 7. MS Office Pro 2010. IE does not disappear, for me, like in the thread you showed. When I click a hyperlink it browser session opens to my NON-sandboxed browser session.....the one I use for the cameras. As soon as I cl...

Re: Make SB my Default Browser [SOLVED]

My default browser is IE. In SB I have IE as a forced program. See picture. I need to run a session of IE out of the sandbox for our security cameras. In the taskbar I click “disable forced programs” then start an IE session out of the sandbox. If I click on another IE icon and start and a new IE se...

Re: Make SB my Default Browser

Ok.
Thank you.

Looks like it works a little differently than protected workspace.

Thank you again.

Re: Make SB my Default Browser

Maybe I am asking the wrong question?

Can I set the Sandboxes Web Browser to be my Default browser? Like you can in protected workspace, see picture

Make SB my Default Browser [SOLVED]

I have recently installed SB and so far so good. The GUI is taking me a minute to get use to. I was previously running PW (Protected Workspace), which is a basically SB re-branded for Dell, as I understand it. PW would allow me to basically have 3 browsers: Chrome, IE and PW was its own browser. My ...

new install

Just getting Sandboxie setup.

When opening a PDF that is attached to an email, will Adobe Read be sandboxed? Should I see a yellow box around the PDF like I do when running windows explorer?
