Windows Defender Application Guard (WDAG) is supposed to run on Windows 11 Home (not like Windows 10). But I can't find it in Windows Features and the Powershell way does not work either. Any ideas?

Are you sure it's supported on Windows 11 Home because Microsoft Defender Application Guard supported in Windows 11 Pro, Education, and Enterprise editions.

Yes i notice that but that does not make it a feature missing from Home edition.

In a Windows 11 Pro installation, as in Windows 10 Pro, there is a tick-box for enabling/disabling "Microsoft Defender Application Guard" in Settings > System > Apps > Optional features > More Windows features. That feature entry does not exist in Windows 10 Home or 11 Home, so it's availability doesn't appear to have been extended to Windows 11 Home; and it appears that the MS system requirements notice you pointed to is perhaps not as clear as it should be. The only way you could get full confirmation is by contacting MS direct to query that advisory notice.
