How to Turn On or Off App Suggestions in Share flyout in Windows 10

information   Information
The Windows sharing experience in Windows 10 allows you to share files and share web pages in Microsoft Edge from installed UWP (Universal Windows Platform) apps such as Mail, Twitter, OneNote, Cortana Reminders, Facebook, etc...

Starting with Windows 10 build 15002, Microsoft has redesigned the Windows sharing experience to be more app-focused and integrated with where you are sharing from. The new Windows Share experience will pop-up the new share flyout within the app you are sharing from and give you a list of applications you can share to. This list changes based on your usage.

Starting with Windows 10 build 15042:
  • The new Share icon is now visible in Microsoft Edge and the Windows Ink Workspace Sketchpad and Screen Sketch.
  • If you right-click an app suggestion in Share, you’ll now find a context menu option to turn them off.

This tutorial will show you how to turn on or off showing app suggestions in the Share flyout for your account in Windows 10.
