  • Hello, colleagues!

    I wanna set option "Let apps on other devices open apps on this device" with GPO, but i can't find this setting in templates. I found setting with registry key:

    #Smartglass; let apps on other devices open apps on this device
    RegSetValue HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\SmartGlass\UserAuthPolicy 
    Type: REG_DWORD, Length: 4, Data: 0

    But i want to do this setting with temlate in order to prevent changing this setting from user.

  • Hi Alexey,

    To turn off Let apps on my other devices open apps and continue experiences on this devices:

    Turn off the feature in the UI.


    Disable the Group Policy: Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > System > Group Policy > Continue experiences on this device.

    If you disable this policy setting, the Windows device is not discoverable by other devices, and cannot participate in cross-device experiences.
