"Program Start" Settings Group

Sandboxie Control > Sandbox Settings > Program Start:

Settings in this section control which programs will be automatically sandboxed when started outside any sandbox. Put another way, here you select the program which Sandboxie will "force" to run sandboxed.


Forced Folders

Sandboxie Control > Sandbox Settings > Program Start > Forced Folders

You may designate some folders for automatic, or forced, sandboxing. This means that if any program from that folder starts unsandboxed, then Sandboxie will automatically force that program to run in the sandbox. Some examples where this is useful:

Use this settings page to select the folders (or drives) to which Forced Folders should apply.

Notes:

Related Sandboxie Ini setting: ForceFolder.


Forced Programs

Sandboxie Control > Sandbox Settings > Program Start > Forced Programs

You may designate some program names for automatic, or forced, sandboxing. This means that if that program starts unsandboxed, then Sandboxie will automatically force that program to run in the sandbox. The most common use for the Forced Programs setting is to set the Web browser to automatically run sandboxed.

Use this settings page to select the programs that will be forced to run in the sandbox. Use the Add By Name button to enter the program name, or the Add By File button to select the program file through folder navigation.

You can also configure this setting in the Program Settings window.
