Windows 10 Share on right click Solved

    Windows 10 Share on right click

    I recently right clicked on a sensitive file and instead of clicking on Open with, accidentally clicked on the Share button. The following window popped up:

Name:	file.jpg 
Views:	13 
Size:	16.6 KB 
ID:	179688

    I immediately pressed the Esc key and the window disappeared. Does this window automatically share the file with the contacts listed in this window? Or would I have had to select a contact and go through additional steps to actually share the file? I'm worried that I've shared sensitive financial information with contacts that really shouldn't have seen them.

    Hello Jim, and welcome to Ten Forums. :)

    No worries. You would have needed to click on one of the apps that you wanted to use to share with first, and then click on another option to share the file with the app.

    Thanks so much for your quick response Brink. I got a minor heart attack when I thought that file had been shared. My ass would have been fired in minutes. Thanks again.
