When Microsoft shared features of upcoming features of Creators Update on Windows 10, they also talked about a universal Share UI. This feature lets you share almost anything from anywhere on Windows 10. Seems like this feature is already available in recent Windows 10 Insiders Build, and can be enabled by adding a simple registry entry.
That said, this of course is buggy, and this is the reason why Microsoft hasn’t enabled it, but if you would like to try it out, follow the steps below:
Short Description for those who know how to handle registry :
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel] "EnableShareSettings"=dword:00000001
Step by step details those who cant:
- Open Run prompt by using WIN + R keys.
- Type “REGEDIT”, and hit enter. You will need to have administrator privilege to get this done.
- Navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel
- Right click on the right pane, and create a new “DWORD(32-bit) Value. Name it as “EnableNewShareFlow”
- Then double click on the created value, and enter value as 1.
- Exit Registry.
Next navigate to Settings> System > Share and enable all the social sharing options which you ant to use. You will have to enable sharing on the apps you use.
How to share :
Open any website on Microsoft Edge. Next click on the menu bar (…) and select share. This will allow you to share with existing apps on Windows 10.
The best part of enabling this feature is that doesn’t create any problem, but still be warned if you do any mistake it can be a problem. Try it on your own risk.
