Windows 10 Enterprise Getting "InPrivate Desktop" Sandboxed Execution Feature

Microsoft is adding an "InPrivate Desktop" to Windows 10 Enterprise sometime in the future. According to Bleeping Computer this feature will allow admins to run untested/untrusted software in a VM sandbox. No word on whether Hyper-V has to be installed on the OS. Hyper-V or not, this is a nice feature to have baked into the OS and I'm sure admins will find it very useful. I just wish this feature would roll out to lesser versions of the OS.

"InPrivate Desktop (Preview) provides admins a way to launch a throwaway sandbox for secure, one-time execution of untrusted software," the Feedback Hub questions explains. "This is basically an in-box, speedy VM that is recycled when you close the app!"
