Tip #2. Sandbox: Stay safe by using Windows Sandbox feature

Sandbox is another exciting new feature that was introduced with the Windows 10 May 2019 Update (version 1903). It offers a separate testing environment to try out software or download apps from websites that you’re not so sure about. Sandbox is part of the Pro and Enterprise edition of Windows 10 so unfortunately it’s not available in Windows 10 Home. Also your processor and motherboard need to support virtualization. If the virtualization is supported but not enabled, check your motherboard manufacturer to find it out how to enable it. 

Sandbox is like a virtual PC that’s built right into your Operating System. This way you can run programs or access websites in a safe zone without affecting your system. Although you may be able to create virtual machines to reach the same experience, Windows Sandbox has some key benefits. By using it eliminates the steeps on downloading and creating virtual machines. Every time you run the Sandbox features, it will immediately create a new clean Windows 10 installation. Once the Windows Sandbox gets closed every thing gets wiped out automatically. Also an important thing is that everything happens inside the environment while being isolated from your main installation to offer maximum security.

Windows Sandbox system requirements

Before going through the steps on how to enable Windows Sandbox feature, make sure your device meet these minimum software and hardware requirements:

  • Windows 10 Pro (or Enterprise).
  • Hardware virtualization.
  • AMD64 architecture.
  • 2 processor cores minimum (4 cores with hyperthreading is recommended).
  • 4GB of RAM (8GB is recommended).
  • 1GB of HDD space (SSD is recommended)

How to check if virtualization is enabled

Hardware virtualization most be enabled in the BIOS of your system. Depending of your motherboard you may need to check if it supports it and how to enable.

To check is its enabled follow the steps below:

  • In the search bar type “CMD” end pres enter
  • Next in the CMD window type the following commandsysteminfo.exe
  • Check under the “Hyper-V Requirements” section, if “Virtualization Enabled In Firmware” reads Yes, then you can use Windows Sandbox.
check if virtualization is enabled
check if virtualization is enabled

How to enable Windows Sandbox feature on Windows 10

Sandbox isn’t turned on by default, so you have to activate it first. Here’s how to:

  • On the windows search bar type “Turn Windows features on or off” and pres “Enter
  • In the pop-up window search for “Windows Sandbox” option
  • Check the “Windows Sandbox” and then click “OK” button
  • Click the Restart now button

After completing above steps, you can start now using the new virtualization layer to install and test untrusted applications temporarily.

How to use Windows Sandbox feature on Windows 10

To start using the Windows Sandbox feature you have just activated is really easy, just follow the steps below:

  • In the windows search bar type “Windows Sandbox
  • In the search results at the top, right-click to “Windows Sandbox” and select “Run as administrator”
  • This will open the Sandbox window
  • Now at you main device, copy the app that you want to test it and than past it inside the Windows Sandbox experience
  • Click on the installer (.exe, .msi, etc) to execute the installation

You can safely now open it and check if everything is okay or use edge to check out some dodgy website you’re not sure about, to make sure it’s safe. When you’re done just close Sandbox an the X button and all the content there is going to be wiped out. So even if the Sandbox is compromised next time you start it up again, it’s going to give you a brand new box to play with, but be aware that Sandbox only gives you an Operating System with a browser, none of the other third party applications are going to be available in Sandbox.

So you can’t copy an office attachments that you received into the Sandbox and open it there because you won’t have Office in the Sandbox. You can install apps, but you’re going to have to install them again next time you open up a new Sandbox. Also keep note that you can’t drag and drop files form your Windows main installation to the Windows Sandbox interface.

So keep that in mind!

How to group tabs in Google Chrome

Chrome 81 is available for Windows, Mac and Linux from now on. As the name suggests, Tab Groups are the new way to organize the many tabs you have opened at once in Chrome and it’s easy:

  • First, update to the latest version of Chrome. Go to Settings>About Chrome.
  • Next, create a new tab group, right-click a tab and select “Add to new group option. Note: if you don’t see this option, you might not have the feature yet and if you still want to use Tab Groups, enable it at chrome://flags.
  • Some tabs will change colors to indicate their group and a dot will appear as the group header.
  • To add tabs to a group, right-click each tab and select Add to the existing group or drag the tabs and drop them. To remove tabs from groups use this same drag-and-drop method.
  • Change a group name, simply clicking the group. Here, you can change the color of the group.

As you see the new Tab Groups feature has many customization options available. By clicking on the tab title you can select colors, remove tabs from the group, and close all tabs in the group. You can also switch tabs from one group to another.

Tab groups will change the way you use Chrome. You will no longer need to keep multiple windows open for different projects because they can all coexist in a single one.

Galaxy S20 Camera

7 Ways to Get the Best of the Galaxy S20 Camera: Choose your Favorite!

Below neoAdviser lists 7 ways to get the best out of your Galaxy S20 camera.

The Galaxy S20 series camera is the most powerful of all the Galaxy saga. Now the series is on the market and you can all test it closely. The camera on the Galaxy S20, S20+ and S20 Ultra is built to change the way we capture the moment by offering endless options among which we often find it difficult to choose the right one.

[td_block_ad_box spot_id=”custom_ad_2″]

Every aspect of the Galaxy S20’s camera is designed to help you capture, edit and share photos and videos more easily than ever. Below the neoAdviser lists 7 ways to get the best out of your Galaxy S20 camera. At the end, we invite you to vote on what you find most important.

1. Capture what is important, as it is

When it comes to taking real photos, the resolution of a camera is essential. To help you shoot your next shots, each Galaxy S20 comes with an advanced sensor camera so you can capture your special moments in super high resolution.

With 108MP resolution on the S20 Ultra and 64MP on the S20 and S20+, photos and videos are so perfect in pixels that you can enlarge city views or landscapes with even the smallest details.

2. Get close to the Action

Not only is the Galaxy S20 camera powerful, but it is also full of innovative Zoom capabilities. The Galaxy S20’s Space Zoom feature brings you closer to all action, with the S20 and S20+ supporting up to 30x zoom and the S20 Ultra supporting game-changing 100x zoom.

Whether you’re at a concert or trying to capture your favorite player during a game, Space Zoom means you’re able to enlarge the visuals you love while maintaining image clarity. Even if you are looking to photograph something far away – such as the Moon – you will be able to capture the luminous subject as if it were right in front of you with Space Zoom.

3. Immerse yourself in a Cinematographic Video

If you’re shooting for a breathtaking, real-time sunset, now with the Galaxy S20, you can capture every beautiful detail in 8K without the need for other gadgets – perfect for those moments that require nothing less than to record with cinematic quality.

Not only that, but the Galaxy S20 can also help you focus on each particular moment by letting you select and save photos from your 33MP high resolution video recordings. Want to share your moment with your friends and family, exactly how you experienced it? You can stream your 8K videos straight to a Samsung 8K TV.

4. Let the Camera Do the Work

Finding the perfect camera mode can cost you essential seconds when trying to capture a spontaneous reunion or unexpected purpose. Single Take relieves the pressure as it uses AI to capture different versions of the same moment using each of its cameras.

With Single Take, all you have to do is press Record when the moment calls and the Galaxy S20 will capture images, up to 10 seconds, with a wide range of capture modes. Once it’s over, you’ll be able to review the clips and decide if you like what you shot best as my laps, as a forward-and-reverse video, or as one of many other options in the Gallery app.

5. Stay Focused on Fun

Life happens fast, and some of our most fun memories happen when we are on the go. Therefore, cameras should be able to walk our daily adventure, even when they are happening at 10 miles per hour.

The upgraded Super Steady utilizes a new and improved anti-rolling stabilizer and AI motion analysis to stabilize movement as you record. So the next time you’re trying to capture all the action on camera, don’t worry – your S20 will help you with clear, consistent shots.

6. Catch Clearly, also at the Night

When capturing scenes in low light conditions, we are often disappointed to see our pictures appear blurry, or simply different in appearance to us. But the Galaxy S20’s camera is set to change everything thanks to its larger image sensor, which means that even in the default camera mode, photos and videos come out clear and real, regardless of lighting conditions.

You can also enable Night Mode on your Galaxy S20 device. Powered by multi-image processing technology and multi-ISO composition, the Galaxy S20’s Night Mode works to reduce the motion blur found in night-time photos, and low lights. The S20 Ultra even features a unique nona-binning technology, the first of its kind, which merges nine pixels into one for exceptional low light photography and video.

7. Don’t Miss Any Opportunity to Shoot and Share

Not only is the Galaxy S20 camera ready for any scenario, but it also takes powerful performance to the next level. Thanks to its exceptional storage capability, you’ll have plenty of room for all your favorite photos and videos. And with the battery lasting all day, you’ll never have to prioritize usage on your phone, meaning you’ll never miss a single moment. Also, for those who want to spread the love, the Galaxy S20 Fast Speed ​​allows users to share files with up to five friends at once, without pairing the device.

The Galaxy S20’s camera is designed to remove the stress of shooting and capturing videos in order to capture everything as you see it, easier than ever before – all you have to do is get targeted and shoot.

Mac computers make all that easier because you can now have two windows open side-by-side on your screen.

Then you will be given three options, enter full screen, tile window to the left of the screen or tile window to the right of the screen. Once you have selected which side of the screen you want you to work on you can then select another window to fill up the other side.

Another way Macs help you to multi-task is through their sidecar feature. If you own an iPad you can use the iPad screen as a second screen for your Mac. Once you have connected it you will be able to send one of your windows to the iPad and work on it there using your keyboard and trackpad.
