D365FO Sandbox

Dear All,
 
I have access to d365-poc-sandbox from my company. I could login to the sandbox. Now I want to start learning development from scratch. I couldn't find any Visual Studio application within my sandbox environment. How do I know if I have developer access with my login? Or Can I install Visual studio 2022 community edition on my personal laptop ( Not work laptop ) and integrate the D365 sandbox (work login) ?
 
Also, I tried using Microsoft Learn labs to learn D365FO development, but it seems to me that I can only do the given labs until I finish my session.  
Just want to know 1)  if there is any way for me to save my work each time, so I can build a small project for learning purposes? and 2) Can I do my own use cases  ( other than the ones provided by MS Learn labs ), for my learning purposes ?
 
Excuse me for putting many questions into one.
 
Your help is much appreciated.

    The RDP option will not be available for Sandbox. The best option would be you deploy a cloud-hosted instance (Dev box or Tier-1) which will have VS installed already and use it as needed.

    You'd need a remote desktop connection to a development environment, where you'd find Visual Studio with F&O tools already installed. But I can't say whether your d365-poc-sandbox is a development environment at all.
     
    1) Is there is any way for me to save my work each time? The best approach is using a source control system, such as TFVC or Git in Azure DevOps. Otherwise you can export your project and store it somewhere.
     
    2) Can I do my own use cases  ( other than the ones provided by MS Learn labs ), for my learning purposes? If you get a development environment and permissions to use it, you can do anything there. But again, we don't know what type of environment you have.
