    Disable 1 Setting


    Hi everyone
    I just got the Anniversary update!
    Found that a new item added to the Settings:

    Settings > Privacy > General > Let apps on my other devices open apps and continue experiences on this device

    I just wanna find this item's registry key in order to be able to disable it via registry ONLY.
    It was NOT here:

    HKCU\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\DeviceAccess\Global

    Please someone help me find it
    Thanks

    Hello omidsolo,

    The registry key location for the advertising ID setting is below:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\AdvertisingInfo


    Enabled DWORD:
    0 = Off
    1 = On

    Id string value:
    (delete) = Off
    <unique generated Id number> = On

    You may have to add the DWORD value, and set it accordingly. If the DWORD does not exist, it may default to ON=1.

    I don't have that DWORD value.....

    my registry is being shown like yours!
    If you goto Settings > Privacy > General >
    You will found that the registry key I've got here is for the 1st item (Let apps use my advertising ID), not for my requested one (Let apps on my other devices open apps and...)!
    Thanks

    Ok, maybe @Brink Shawn will see this and have the correct one.

    When turned off, the Enabled DWORD gets set to 0 and Id string value gets deleted in the AdvertisingInfo key.

    When turned on, the Enabled DWORD gets set to 1 and Id string value gets created with a unique value data in the AdvertisingInfo key.

    It would be best to export the AdvertisingInfo key while it's turned on to have a proper Id string value included along with the Enabled DWORD for a turn on .reg file.
