This tutorial will show you how to turn on or off sharing across devices for your account in Windows 11.

Share across devices (aka: "Project Rome", "Shared Experiences", and "Cross-device Experiences") allows you to continue app experiences on other devices connected to your account.

You can select to share app experiences on My devices only or with Everyone nearby.
  • My devices only (default) = Only allows apps running on devices you have signed into with the same Microsoft account to use this feature.
  • Everyone nearby = Gives everyone near you permission to use the share across devices feature with your PC.
References:


Share across devices will need to be turned on for each device that you want to share app experiences across.

I didn't use the reg files, so I doubt they have changed, but if you do it via the Settings App, the location has changed. You have to click "Apps" -> "Apps & Features" -> "Share across devices".
