    Shared Experiences

    Hi,

    Shared Experiences allow you to start a task on one device and finish it on another, or easily set up a remote control or other companion apps on a smartphone. If you don’t want to use the feature, we suggest that you disable it. Kindly follow these steps
    below:

    • Click
      Start.
    • Select
      Settings.
    • Click
      System.
    • Select the Shared experiences link on the left-hand side. Here you will see a switch that lets you toggle the Share across devices feature to the On or Off position.
    • Enable it then restart your computer.
    • Go again to Shared Experiences in Settings app, and disable it completely.

    Let us know if you need further assistance.

    Shared Experience

    Hi Zyxian,

    By default, Shared experiences feature
    is turned on in Windows 10, and your device is set to share or receive from your own devices only. But if you wish, you can disable it or change the settings. Here are the steps on how to have it disabled:

    • Click
      Start.
    • Select
      Settings.
    • Click
      System.
    • Select the Shared experiences link on the left-hand side.
      Here you will see a switch that lets you toggle the Share across devices feature to the On or Off position. If you do not think you will feel the need to share your experiences, you may if you wish, turn off this feature by toggling
      the switch to the Off position.

    Do let us know if you need any other assistance.

    Regards.

    Shared Experience

    I have tried to get rid of the shared experience notification and I am
    STILL getting that annoying message and I DO NOT WANT to share anything. Has someone actually found a way to get rid of this thing? If MS is going to "offer" these wonderful enhancements, they should find a way to do it without being a pest.

    Hi Robert,

    By default, the Shared experiences feature is turned on in Windows 10, and your device is set to share or receive from your own devices only, but you can disable it or change the settings. If you're not using the feature you can also disable or change the
    Shared experiences settings by going to Settings > Systems
    > Shared experiences.

    Also, to better assist in resolving your concern, kindly provide answers to the questions below:

    • Were there any changes made or updates installed prior to the issue occurring?
    • What was the exact error message that you encountered?
    • Which version and build of Windows 10 is installed on your device?

    We look forward to your response, don't hesitate to get back to us.

    If you think this was useful, you may "mark it as an answer"
    to help those who are facing the same problem.
