  1. Cross with the Greek windows 10 pro and the option "Enable and Disable Features" was the Windows Sandbox installation by checking the "Windows Protected Environment" option and I did not check the option called "Virtual Machine Platform". (Is there something wrong done)?

  2. »Click on the" Start "button and search for" Windows Features "»

    Unfortunately you forget that you refer to Greeks who 99% will have Windows installed ... Windows features to search in Greek Windows .... Not a chance…

  3. While your drivers are very useful, nevertheless insist on giving instructions to find options in Windows with English display language. I am absolutely convinced that> 50% of your readers have Greek Windows. So the newbie user will have to search for another article on the Internet to see that the Windows Features window will find it called "Enabling and Disabling Features" while "Windows Sandbox" will find it with called "Virtual Machine Platform". And no, my right click does not say 'Copy'. He says Greek "Copy". Do you do all the work, dedicate 2 'above to write the corresponding choices we will find in Greek. I do not say, it is good to live and breathe as a "citizen of the world", but not everyone is tech experts. Thanks.
