    Share across devices setting turns itself on.


    Settings > System > Shared Experiences > Share across devices

    That "Share across devices" toggle will not stay off. It enables itself every reboot, probably just since 14 JAN cumulative update. Any ideas why?

    Windows 10 x64 LTSC 1809 (17763.973)

    Shared Experiences???? NO OTHER DEVICES AND WONT TURN OFF...

    thanks for updating us, Mike.

    Well, the steps that we've provided is for us to turn OFF the Shared Experiences feature. Upon disabling the said feature, we're expecting that its notification will also be disabled.

    Here is another method that you can try:

    • Go to Settings.
    • On its search tab, type Notifications, and click the suggestion for
      Notifications and action settings
      .
    • Under it, turn OFF the following and observe:

      - Get notifications from apps and other sender (options)
    By the way. Was the
    Microsoft Account Troubleshooter able to
    bring anything in hand?

    turning on file and printer sharing windows 10

    Thank you for the update. What we can suggest now is to turn on File and Printer sharing in Command Prompt. Here are the steps to do it:



    • Leave File and Printer Sharing for Microsoft Networks turned
      on.
    • Type CMD in the Search bar.
    • Right-click on Command Prompt, and select Run as Administrator.
    • Type netsh advfirewall firewall set rule group="File and Printer Sharing" new enable=Yes, and hit
      Enter.
    • Exit from the command prompt, and check if it will work.


    If issue persists, try turning it on using Powershell, and check if it works. Here are the steps:



    • Leave File and Printer Sharing for Microsoft Networks turned
      on.
    • Type Powershell in the Search bar.
    • Right-click on Windows PowerShell, and select
      Run as Administrator
      .
    • Type netsh advfirewall firewall set rule group="File and Printer Sharing" new enable=Yes, and hit
      Enter.
    • Close PowerShell.


    Let us know how it goes.

    Share across devices setting turns itself on.

    I don't have any bluetooth devices but windows turned it on!!


    Then if they are still on, try some of these steps listed below, Not all of these steps may not apply, but, step #2 and #4 should help. I have all 4 steps on myself.

    1 Go to Device manager and DISABLE Bluetooth, Do Not remove!
    2 Turn USB suspend off
    3 Set Hard Drive or SSD to Never
    4 Turn Link State Power Management off
    Settings 2 thur 4 can be found in your Power Management Settings.
    Then click on "Change settings that are currently unavailable"
    Then Reboot your Computer. This does work, may come back if you shut OFF your computer,then turn it back on, if it does, just a reboot will turn it off again.
