  • 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.

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".
