Install program in a sandbox

Post by yxliang01 » Sun Mar 19, 2017 4:36 pm

Hello guys,

I have many untrusted programs wanted to install. Having said that, they aren't proven to be malicious - I just don't trust. While I don't mind them to read my files freely, I don't want them to be living outside of a sandbox. I can install them in a sandbox without an error. However, it is somewhat troublesome to execute them from outside. 1) Is there any way to make a shortcut? 2) Is that possible to make them able to register global hot key?

Thanks.

Yes, you can make shortcuts.

Go to:
Sandboxie control>Configure>Windows Shell Integration, Click Add shortcut icons, Select the sandbox where you have installed the program, find the shortcut for the program in the Sandboxie Start menu that opens up (like under Desktop or Programs), Click it. After the click, youll find the sandboxed shortcut at the desktop.

You can also go into the folder of the sandboxed program via regular Windows explorer, right click the programs executable and select create shortcut, once is created you can drag it to the desktop.

Hello yxliang01,

Global hotkeys will not work from Sandboxie.
