In Windows 10, you are able to configure many options using Settings. However, for some reason, there are a few options hidden in the operating system. And one of these hidden ones is the secret Share page. And in this tutorial, we would like to show you how to enable the secret hidden Share page settings with a simple Registry tweak so that you can customize different sharing options.
Before getting started, we recommend making a full backup of your PC, as editing the registry is risky and can harm your installation.
Once the backup is finished, just follow these following steps:
Step 1: First and foremost, you will need to open the Run dialog box using the keyboard shortcut Windows key + R.
Step 2: Next, type in regedit, and then hit Enter to open the registry.
Step 3: Once regedit pops up you follow this path:
Step 4: Select the Control Panel key, right-click on the right side, click on New > DWORD (32-bit) Value.
Step 5: You are prompted to name the new DWORD EnableShareSettings and hit Enter.
Step 6: Double-click on the DWORD you just created, set its value from 0 to 1.
Step 7: Click on the OK button.
Step 8: Close the Registry Editor, and reboot your PC to apply changes.
Once you are all done going through the above steps, you will see the new Share page appearing inside the Settings app.
To customize the sharing options, you simply head to Settings > System > Share.
Inside the Share page, you can control which apps are allowed to share, the number of items showing up in the flyout, and whether to display the most frequently-used apps to display at the top of the list.
In order to see the new changes, you simply click on the Share button on Microsoft Edge, Windows Store apps, or File Explorer.
If you want to revert, just repeat the same steps, but on step 6 set the value from 1 to 0.
